Camp Speers in the Poconos offers 1 and 2-week overnight sessions for campers ages 7- 16. We are committed to providing each camper a fun and exciting experience that will create lasting memories and friendships.

One-Week Sessions  One-week sessions provide campers the opportunity to select 3 activities to do every day. They go on an overnight camp-out and explore Speers’ pristine wilderness areas.

Special Events and Themes

Special Events and Themes are a huge part of  Camp Speers’ traditions. In the evening,  cabin groups work together to assemble a team of super heroes (counselors) or spend a week trying to survive a Zombie Take-Over. Session themes range from popular Disney and Pixar movies to our annual Red, White and Blue week, to celebrate the Fourth of July. Once a summer, campers are divided into teams for the ultimate Color Wars competition.
