Traditional Approach

Remember how great summer camp was when you were a kid? Camp Anglewood takes a traditional approach to the summer camping experience, starting with an instructional swim program and mixing in classic camp activities with various sports. 

We organize our camp activities with a very experienced staff of mostly teachers so that every day is unique. Then add special events like bar-b-ques, talent shows and educational visits by animal experts, sports teams and others. You can see that this summer will be filled with fun camp activities and events your child won't want to miss! Finally, place all this fun in a truly Pocono-like mountain setting and you begin to see the Anglewood experience.

Our campers go home every day tired and full of stories about their camp day.

Group Sizes & Ages

Camp Anglewood is organized into three sections: Lower, Middle, and Upper Camps. Each "camp" usually includes 4 separate groups or bunks. The lower camp includes children from pre-kindergarten to first grade. The middle camp includes second graders through fourth & fifth graders. Fifth graders through sixth & seventh graders dominate the Upper Camp.

This allows activities tailored to campers of similar age, athletic ability, and social environment. Total enrollment is approximately 275 to 300 campers. Group sizes range from 5 to 7 per group in the Lower Camp up to 10 to 12 per group in the Upper Camp.

Each camp group is led by a counselor. Groups in the Lower and Middle Camps are assigned a junior counselor to assist. For most activities two groups go through the daily schedule together. There are special counselors for Arts & Crafts, Lower Court, Upper Field, and Lake activities.

Instructional Swimming Program

Our modern 60 x 50 ft pool accommodates several swim groups of different skill levels each period. Instruction is given for beginning, intermediate, and advanced swimmers. Campers are evaluated at the beginning of camp and throughout the season to insure that they are placed into the appropriate skill group. 

All lessons follow American Red Cross standards and teaching programs are administered by certified lifeguards. Towels are provided. 

The Pool is supervised by 3 to 4 lifeguards in addition to the group counselors. Camp Anglewood tries to maintain a staff to camper ratio as high as possible.

Lunches

Camp Anglewood provides lunch drinks for all campers. Brown bag lunches from home are the norm. Wednesdays involve hotdogs and hamburgers from home cooked on the camp grill during our Bar-B-Que lunch. 

Food allergies and special diet needs are closely monitored.

Free Period

The last period of the day is usually "Free Period". Middle and Upper Campers are allowed to go to whichever activity is designated "open". Boating & fishing, the pool, and the lower court are popular choices. Lower Camp campers can go to which ever activity their counselors monitor; often chosen by the campers' popular demand. Free Period is also the time to attend one of the weekly tournaments.

End of Day & Pickup

After Free Period, everyone gathers around the lake again for afternoon "Flag" and the close of the official day with the playing of "taps". Everyone then moves to the upper court for announcements. Prizes, or snacks are given out on special days. After moving to their assigned gates, most campers are picked up by parents between 3:45 and 4:15 PM. Some go home in assigned car groups. Extended hours campers can stay at camp until 5:30 PM before being picked up by their parents.
