  • over 5 miles of marked hiking trails
  • a COPE course renovated in 2021-2022

Camp Karoondinha is located near Glen Iron, Pa. and has acres of forest and Penn’s Creek bordering our camp.

These facilities are for use by Scouts and Scouters from the Susquehanna Council and visiting units from outside our Council. Non-Scouting groups are also welcome to utilize our facilities.
