The picturesque 500-acre Sinoquipe Scout Reservation, owned and operated by the Shenandoah Area Council, BSA, is nestled in the mountains of Fulton County, Pennsylvania around a 10-acre lake. Conveniently located off the Fort Littleton exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, discover why so many Scouts and Scouters make Camp Sinoquipe their home away from home every summer. Camp Sinoquipe, as it is commonly called, offers a traditional style Scout Camp with Summer camp programs for Scouts BSA (age 11-18) and Venturing (age 14-20). We offer resident and provisional opportunities for all programs. Our summer camp program provides an unlimited supply of opportunities to make your stay at SSR an experience of a lifetime.
