Reserve the Camp

Camp Golden Pond is open to organized group rentals!

Organized groups that can provide a certificate of insurance and are not required to remit PA state and local lodging taxes, should check the calendar and submit a reservation request using the form below.

We accept reservations 12 months out for youth groups and 6 months out for non-youth organized groups.

Private individuals (friend/family groups that do not have general liability insurance) should reserve the camp through Airbnb in order to ensure that all applicable local and state taxes are processed and the rental is covered by appropriate insurance. We accept reservations 3 months out for private individuals renting through AirBnb.

Special events that will serve alcohol should contact us for rates and availability.

Day only usage of outdoor areas by small groups for the purpose of outdoor enrichment and recreation is available at no charge with a reservation. Please contact us for details or for help arranging your day trip.

You may check availability using the calendar below. Note – we do not typically list check-in/check-out times here. If a group is already scheduled to arrive on your desired check-out day (or depart on your check-in day), we will let you know if your desired check in/out times need adjusting. Most groups arrive in the late afternoon/evening on their first day of camp and depart in the morning on their last day.

If you would like to reserve the camp, please complete the form below and we will be in touch to finalize your reservation.

If you require usage of more than one unit, please contact us for rates.

Review unit descriptions.

All rates are per day unless specified otherwise. A 10% discount is available for rentals that only include Monday – Thursday. Friends of Golden Pond reserves the right to adjust rates or require additional insurance depending on the nature of the proposed event.

Groups larger than 50 people will be charged a $50 trash and maintenance fee.

Lodges

Lodges are available year round and include use of an indoor kitchen along with indoor showers and toilets. Note the base rental of Legacy Lodge includes use of the “Troop Kitchen” – a basic four burner stove, coffee pot, microwave, and sink. The commercial kitchen is available for additional fees.

*Legacy rates are $150 during summer season. During the winter season, rates are $200 for youth groups and $250 for non-youth groups.

Note – the commercial kitchen includes a commercial refrigerator. In addition to the refrigerator, there is a walk in chiller and freezer. There is also an insulated cooler box behind the building that can be used to store ice. The walk ins are an additional fee and are NOT available during the winter months. For most groups, the main refrigerator is sufficient to store everything they need.

Outer Units

Outer units are available seasonally (April 15 – October 15). You may contact us if interested in renting outside these dates. All units include usage of a pavilion and bathhouse (toilets only). Pavilions include electricity, an outdoor kitchen with refrigerator, and a fire pit.

Additional Options

A competent facilitator is required for use of the archery equipment. Please provide the name and contact information for your facilitator so that we can verify.

Camp Golden Pond has canoes, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards available for rentals. Rental of the watercraft includes paddles, life vests, and rescue gear. Our fleet includes 14 canoes, 12 youth sized kayaks, 4 full sized single kayaks, 2 full sized tandem kayaks, and 2 stand up paddle boards.

**FGP does not require lifeguards. However, if you would like a qualified lifeguard and boating instructor, FGP can provide one at $20 per hour per guard. The number of guards you require will depend on your group size.
