Outdoor programs are one of the methods by which Scouting teaches character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Camping is fun and involves problem solving, project management, critical thinking, and team leadership skills. Scouts can participate in a resident camp experience at Camp Karoondinha or day camps held at various locations in our five-county service area.

Changes to Camp K
The Susquehanna Council Camping Committee, has made the difficult decision to reduce the number of weeks offered at Camp K. This decision was made because of multiple factors:
- Multiple school districts have extended their current school year which caused the Council to move Staff training a week later this year. This provides the Council the opportunity to hire the best candidates to make your Scout’s week the best it can be.
- The Council has been impacted because many units who traditionally attend Camp Karoondinha from other Councils have notified the Council that they will not be traveling as far from home due to rising gas prices and other challenges.
- We are still rebuilding our membership which was reduced by 45% between 2020 and 2022. Fewer Scouts in the program meant fewer Scouts attending Camp. The Council Executive Board and Camping Committee are committed to adding to the camp schedule if membership returns to 2019 levels.
