Camp Heritage


Camp Heritage (owned by the BSA, Laurel Highlands Council) will host our 2023 program. Heritage opened in 1980; and the regional church camp programs there began in 1996. This will be our twenty seventh year of Camp Heritage.

The Camp Heritage schedule (mid-August) is ideal for home-schooled students, since they’re able to be more flexible in start-up dates for the school year. It’s a great way to finish out your summer!

The older campers (age 15-18) will spend part of the day white water rafting on the lower Youghiogheny River. Campers will face several class three and four rapids. The younger campers will enjoy our annual beach party on the shores of Lake Courage.

Christian Living class kicks off each day’s activities.

Camper Arrival:
Campers should arrive Aug. 6, 2023 between 1 and 2 p.m.

Staff Arrival:
Staff should arrive for training on Aug. 5, 2023 for Sabbath Services at nearby Fairchance, PA.

Travel Information:
If your camper is flying into the Pittsburgh area please note the following.

There are three airports in Pittsburgh. The only airport you should use is Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT). We cannot provide transportation from the others. Rides are usually provided by members of the Pittsburgh, PA congregation.

Please plan on arriving at the airport on Sunday Aug. 6 before 1:00 p.m. This allows for time to get to camp before orientation and activities. Please do not schedule departures on Sunday Aug. 13 before noon. Again, we have breakfast, a compass check and then checkout. Early – late afternoon are best.
