St. John's acquires Camp site was the start of an article found from May 1949. A call went out to all able-bodied men and youth to set aside Wednesday evenings to help ready St. John's Camp site. The vision was to prepare the site not only for regular summer camping, but also for individual and class picnics. You will like the place when you see it, the article continued. All of us are deeply indebted to Mr. Charles Karper who made the contact which resulted in an agreement to purchase 33 acres from D.M. Bream, who was willing to sell the land only after he learned for what purposes St. John's desired to use it. Had Mr. Bream wished, he could have sold it to private parties for several times the sum he asked us to pay.
Today volunteers continue the work that was a vision 60 year s ago to maintain St. John's Camp amidst its splendid beauty. St. John's Camp is nestled along the east side of the Tuscarora Mountain just off Route 75, north of Fort Loudon. From Route 30, turn north on Route 75. Continuing on Route 75, approximately two miles past the sign to Cowan's Gap State Park, turn left on Stumpy Lane. St. John's Camp is located one mile on the left. The camp address is: St. John's Camp, 17436 Stumpy Lane, Fort Loudon, PA 17224. The telephone number is (717) 369-4431. Three summer camps are run each year: Camp Noah, Camp Kum-Ba-Yah and Camp River Wild.
St. John's camp is also available for rent from mid May to October and is used by many return renters. St. John's camp facility includes a modern kitchen and dining room, cabins, outdoor chapel, nature center, open-air pavilion, bath-house with hot showers, basketball and volleyball courts, and a baseball field. Sponsor-A-Camper YOU can help provide a week of summer camp for a child from our church community who is financially unable to attend camp.
