GOLDEN SLIPPER CAMP SITE AND FACILITIES

Golden Slipper has been a charity since 1922. It is situated on over 600 beautiful acres in the Pocono Mountains. Our private lake and surrounding woods are an ideal setting for the celebration of summer. In that spirit, our modern facilities were designed to complement the beauty of this natural setting, not to intrude upon it. You’ll find every building isn’t just functional; it’s aesthetically pleasing, too.

It takes a village. Lots of them.

Golden Slipper Camp accommodates children ages 7 to 15. We’ve created six villages that function as mini camps, with campers bunking in cabins with kids in their age group. Vogelson Village and Strauss Village are for boys and girls, respectively, ages 7 to 10. Kadden Village and Friends Village are for boys and girls 11 to 13. Council Boys Village and Council Girls Village are for teens, ages 14 and 15.

Each village has its own Village Leader, a trained supervisor with specialized knowledge of that age group. Clustering the kids in villages ensures that the groups are small enough to get personal attention, at the same time providing convenient access to a variety of age appropriate programs and activities.

Cabins

Golden Slipper campers sleep in spacious, well-ventilated cabins with plenty of windows and ample room for belongings. Each cabin has full bathroom facilities – sinks, toilets and showers, with lots of hot water, electricity, and round the clock supervision.
