It began on January 14, 1927, at the height of the roaring twenties. Local notable World War I Pennsylvania General Harry C. Trexler donated land to his cherished community. He transformed a lush tract of land in Monroe County into a Camp for the Boy Scouts of the Lehigh County Council. The camp opened in 1928.

Today, our Reservation welcomes Scouts and Cub Scouts from all over to join us in their scouting journey. Each Summer, scouts are greeted with an unrivaled scouting program. The summer Camp program is built upon a theme, each year we switch our theme up! From Zombies, to Lumberjacks, to Time Travel, you will hear songs, see skits, join events, and collect patches that have to do with our Camp theme.

Here at Settlers Camp, we pride ourselves in our Camp Staff. Our staff is some of the most energetic, knowledgeable, helpful individuals that you will meet.

Settlers Camp offers one of the most robust scouting programs around. Each year, Settlers Camp allows scouts the chance to earn a wide array of merit badges. No matter their interests, age or rank on their journey to eagle, every scout will find a badge that fits their wants and needs.

With three separate ranges, a rifle, a shotgun, and an archery range, a Disk Golf Course, a Gaga Ball Pit, eight program areas filled with activities, a fully stocked Waterfront, and one of the largest C.O.P.E. courses in the Northeast Region of the Boy Scouts of America, there is much to experience during your week here at Camp.
