They can bring a lunch to share with their scout, attend the all camp event in the afternoon, and watch the closing retreat ceremony and OA call out ceremony on the parade field at 5:45 pm on Saturday before departing. They can also attend the Friday night campfire but cannot arrive before 7:00 pm on Friday and will need to leave the camp immediately following the campfire. If an emergency arises at any time and someone must come to the camp, they will need to contact the camp by phone (717) 548-2525 in advance and check in at Headquarters when they arrive.

A camp-wide retreat ceremony begins at 5:45 p.m. on the Parade Field. Scouts and leaders must be in full field uniform (class A) if participating. We ask that the SPL be present each night for the ceremony to report in for the troop and to receive important information. Dinner will follow retreat. A camp-wide leader's meeting follows dinner. Each troop should bring a complete merit badge roster and their activity plans to this meeting. A guided tour is offered for those new to camp following dinner as well. A camp-wide opening campfire, put on by the staff, begins at 8:30 p.m
