Explorer 1 (Blue Run Rocks)
Enrollment is open
Check In Time:
Sunday between 4-5 p.m.
Check Out Time:
Friday at 6 p.m.
Explorer camp is a great opportunity for campers who like to rough it a little bit. They will be sleeping outside - sometimes in tents, sometimes in camp's covered lean-tos, and if allowed, sometimes in personal hammocks. Please note that male and female sleeping areas and latrines are segregated. They will be preparing their own meals and enjoying the beauty of creation. Campers will still be able to participate in many of the activities offered on site at Penn-York Camp, but in addition they will also take an offsite trip.
Explorer 1 will be taking a one-night offsite trip to Blue Run Rocks. This is a beautiful location not far from camp where campers will have the opportunity to try their hand at rock climbing or simply explore the area. The round trip hike to Blue Run and back is around 3 miles, so this is a perfect option for campers who want to try out backpacking.
Required Deposit: $25 non-refundable deposit is required to secure registration and discounts.
Total Payment: PYC requests that the total cost of camp be paid before arrival to help speed up the check-in process.
