"Where Families Come Together"
Family Camp at Ten Mile River Scout Camps is a unique campground located on beautiful Lake Nianque. We offer large secluded cabin sites in the wilderness, many of which are lovely waterfront sites right on the lake. You will discover that Family Camp is well equipped to provide a refreshing and enjoyable outdoor adventure for the whole family.
Family Camp is unique in that the entire family, from toddlers to grandparents, participates in a meaningful Scouting experience. Most families come back year after year for the fun, the camaraderie and the togetherness of Family Camp. The camp staff run a full range of daily programs suitable for all ages.
A great waterfront supervised by a certified lifeguard awaits you. Get ready for a refreshing swim or use the rowboats, canoes, kayaks, and sailboats. Go fishing and catch the "BIG ONE".
Beyond the waterfront there are mountain bikes available for your use, a handicraft lodge to test your talents, the Red Dot Trail for hikes, volleyball, horseshoes, and an archery range.
Take a Family Camp trip down the Delaware River or hike to Indian Cliffs. Read a book, relax, meet new friends. Join in evening programs from pot luck dinners and movies, to Karaoke and campfires - it's always fun for the whole family.
Or, if you'd rather just spend some quality time with your family in a pristine, natural environment, you can do that. Take part in as much of the Family Camp programs as you like.
