Opened in 1919. The camp is located on 23 acres at the "Forks" where Little Conewago enters into Big Conewago Stream. In the old days it was the location of a trader's cabin that collected furs and traded with the Conewago Indians and early settlers. The York-Adams Council operates this camp, but they do not own it, it is held by a trust independent of the BSA. They offer tent campsites and cabin rentals. and a Cub Scout summer day camp. The Gettysburg National Park is located nearby, so many Troops use Camp Conewago as their base camp.
