Summer Camp

Seven Mountains Scout Camp

Summer Camp can be one of the most memorable experiences during a Scout's Summer break.  It's a time for Scouts to have fun, meet new friends, learn new skills, get a jump start on their next rank and spend time unplugged and outdoors.  There are three different Summer camp opportunities provided at Seven Mountains Scout Camp.  Each program is designed with age appropriate activities to keep the Scouts active and engaged throughout their stay.  Seven Mountains is designed to accommodate all campers and features indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, a lake and swimming pool, dining facilities, and more; altogether 230 acres of forest surrounded by even more wilderness.

Attendance at Scout Camp also makes the Scout eligible for the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award.


Cub Scout Day Camp

Cub Scout Day Camp is for any youth entering First through Fifth grades.  Siblings and parents are also welcome!  It is a day-only program and Scouts may sign up for individual days to suit the family's schedule.  The program includes camp favorites such as BB-Guns, Archery, and Aquatics each day, along with other activities throughout the week. Scouts will be provided lunch in the dining hall.


Cub Scout Family Camp

Cub Scout Family Camp starts in the evenings after Day Camp dismisses. Scouts will have the opportunity to participate in open program areas and other fun evening activities, relax, spend the night at camp, and enjoy dinner and breakfast in the dining hall. A Parent/Guardian must be present for Family Camp, and the first parent is included in the youth registration.  Families may stay in the Seven Mountains tents or bring their own.


Webelos Resident Camp

Webelos Resident Camp is for any youth entering Forth or Fifth grades.  This camp at Seven Mountains offers one week of overnight camping for Webelos Scouts to complete advancements and have new experiences. This 5 day 4 night program takes your Scout on an Adventure around Seven Mountains that he will never forget.  In addition to shooting sports, aquatics, scoutcraft, Scouts are encouraged to hike the trails in and around 7MC, attend twilight activities, and enjoy campfires.  All meals are included.  


Registration information will be distributed via newsletter annually.  If you need this information, please contact us:  

Medical Forms

All Youth and Adults attending Camp will need to have a current BSA Medical form on file.  Parts A & B  are required for Day and Family Camp; Parts A, B & C are required for Webelos Camp.  Note that Part C requires a physician's signature, so please plan ahead and bring the from to your next doctor's appointment.  Medical forms will be collected by the Pack approximately 2 weeks prior to camp so they can be turned in to the council at our pre-registration meeting.  This helps us check-in go more quickly, which allows us to have more time to enjoy at camp.

Emergency Contacts

In Case of an emergency the camp office can be reached at 717-364-1017. There is only one line into camp, so please keep it line open for emergencies.  Cell phone numbers for Pack leaders will be provided to parents before camp starts.


The Juniata Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America is committed to making the outdoor program available to every youth regardless of financial ability. Scouts needing financial assistance to participate in Summer Camping Programs are encouraged to apply.  To apply submit the campership form to the Juniata Valley Council by May 1st.


What if my Scout is allergic to certain foods?

All food allergies should be reported to the Juniata Valley Council by completing the Special Dietary Needs Form prior to camp. The Dining Hall Staff work to make sure every Scouts needs are met.

Can I send Food or snacks with my Scout?

You may send a snack along with your Scout. Please remember that Camp does have animals and critters that love a free snack, so be sure to limit snacks and provide safe storage.  Please avoid snacks containing peanuts or tree nuts.

Do I have to attend with my Scout?

While we prefer that Scouts are accompanied to camp, we understand that this is not always possible. BSA policy requires that Tigers (entering 1st grade in the fall) be accompanied by an adult. Other Scouts can be led by an adult from their Pack.
