Family Camps

Family camps are popping up all over the nation. They provide a unique way for families to spend time and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and beautiful surroundings that a camp setting provides.

Susque offers two Family Camp options: Susque Family Camp (formerly Homeschool Family Camp) and Classic Family Camp. Both occur for one week in August and include programming and activities for all ages. Many of our Family Campers return year after year, enjoying the traditions they establish as well as the camaraderie of the other Family Campers. Daily Chapels provide time for your family to grow together in Christ and be refreshed as you enjoy a break from your daily life.

Lodging options range from bringing your own tent to our cabins or cozy lodges. You can cook your own food or purchase delicious, family-friendly meals from the dining hall using one of our Meal Plans. 

If this is the first time you are considering a Family Camp or you have any questions, please read our FAQ for Family Camp and don't hesitate to give us a call (570-998-2151) or email us a question (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Family Camper Testimonials

"Hearing God's Word spoken all day, either in Chapel or in random conversations, experiencing loads of fun, deep fellowship, and the amazing beauty of mountains, green grass, trees, and water are all irreplaceable to our family who flies in each summer to attend Camp Susque Family Camp!"

"We love Family Camp at Camp Susque! It's one of the few places left where we can let our children run and play freely, and know they are surrounded by godly, caring friends and family. It strengthens our family bonds and refreshes us with the beauty of creation. For some of us, it brings back old memories and good laughs. And there's nothing better at the end of the day than stories, songs and snacks around a campfire!"

"I have been a part of Family Camp for 42 years & continue going with my own family, so that they can enjoy nature, as well as enjoy Christian fellowship with others around the campfires. We love the singing time underneath the pavilion. It sounds so beautiful & gives us an idea of what heaven will be like some day with the singing there."

Susque Family Camp

August 5-11, 2018

Susque Family Camp (formerly Homeschool Family Camp) is a unique and encouraging experience, offering families a vacation like no other. Each day is filled with thoughtful programming, educational activities, meaningful Chapels, special evening events, great food and lodging, and of course, our nightly Ice Cream Shop. Our year-round and summer staff are eager to serve as you kick back and relax from the daily grind! 

The goal of Susque Family Camp is for families to be challenged by the meaningful Chapels, be refreshed by other families working together in community, and grow closer together as a family as they spend intentional time playing and living together outside of the scope of their daily lives at home.

Leave the cell phones, laundry, and dishes behind and let our staff and beautiful surroundings minister to your family's soul as you come and enjoy a week at Susque!

Susque Family camp has a schedule that more closely reflects our Boys and Girls summer camps, which means there is almost always a community oriented activity for your whole family to enjoy.  A wide variety of optional activities help introduce you to new friends, and many educational opportunities help this to be both a vacation and a truly enriching time for all.
