On the surface, Susquehannock is a camp that teaches its campers how to live with nature, how to become a better athlete, and how to become a neater person. But, after spending nearly a decade of my childhood summers in cabins on that hill atop Tripp Lake, I can tell you that the place offers much more than it advertises. This camp, nestled in the Endless Mountains in Brackney, PA, is greater than the sum of its staff, campers, and activities. The people, the games, the traditions, and the overall way of life out there fosters an environment that makes the camper a better person on an off the playing field. You learn how to respect life and others; you learn how to compete with a great attitude; the discipline to better yourself and your surroundings gets engrained in you. I could go on…
The fact is this: I was fortunate enough to be able to afford the opportunity to go to Susquehannock; other deserving kids are not. So, it is my goal to help generate support for the Camp Susquehannock Scholarship Fund so that these great kids from varying economic, cultural, and geographical backgrounds can come and experience what I have and make some lifetime friends along the way.
