Family Vacation Rentals

This summer, Bear Creek Camp is opening the opportunity for a relaxing vacation for your family (or extended family and friends) with opportunities for exploring nature, enjoying s’mores, great food, and time amongst the woods, creeks, and lake. Though this does not look like a traditional summer at Bear Creek Camp, we are excited to offer cabin and tent space rentals. Rentals will be available beginning June 29th and currently through August 9th.

To make a reservation call the camp office 570-472-3741 or email bccamp@bearcreekcamp.org and we will follow up.
