Two great family camp options

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 (susque@susque.org). We look forward to working with you to make your family’s camp experience refreshing, fun, and rewarding!

Susque Family Camp

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.

Classic Family Camp

Classic Family Camp has been a tradition for generations of families. For over 30 years, Susque has been providing families with a relaxing and refreshing space to unwind from their busy lives and spend time hanging out, participating in camp activities, or just plain doing nothing. Each day is filled with thoughtful programming, meaningful Chapels, great food and lodging, and of course, our nightly Ice Cream Shop. Let our year-round and summer staff serve you as you kick back and relax from the daily grind!

The goal of Classic Family Camp is for families to be challenged by the meaningful Chapels, be refreshed by the beautiful surroundings and quiet spaces, 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 camp setting minister to your family’s soul as you come and enjoy the week at Susque!
