Camp Mountain Run

Camp Mountain Run is a beautiful 380+ acre camp located in Penfield, PA.  It is just minutes from I-80 and Rt. 219.  The camp offers exciting summer programs and a great facility for weekend camping, corporate retreats, church youth group outings, and weddings.

2022 Summer Programs

Where but at camp can youth experience all that the great outdoors offers! Sleeping under the stars in a tent, telling stories and singing songs next to the crackling of a campfire, hiking in the woods and seeing all that nature has to offer with his fellow scouts and friends, canoeing and fishing in the calm waters of a beautiful lake, building their skills skills at the archery and rifle ranges, experiencing the exciting COPE Course, and enjoy all the fun activities that the camp will offer. Camp Mountain Run summer camp offers this and much, much more. When a scout leaves camp he will leave with a smile on his face, memories and friends that will last a lifetime.

At summer camp, youth come closer to the natural world and to one another. They explore trails and sharpen skills together. Here, in the outdoors they share triumphs and troubles, and learn important values as a group – values like patience and respect for others’ point of view, and doing their fair share and helping others in need – life skills that are part of the personal growth we want for every scout.

Come and join us this summer for our new exciting summer program at Camp Mountain Run on our nearly 390 spacious acres nestled in the rural Allegheny Mountains, with a lake and stream that provides an exciting Scouting experience of a lifetime!

Camp Mountain Run offers a dedicated staff of qualified people to help make your camp experience a success.

Camp Mountain Run has been Nationally accredited as a summer camp through 2023!
