Trexler Scout Reservation, in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, is the Northeast Region’s foremost Boy Scout Camp. On January 14, 1927, at the height of the roaring twenties, local World War I Hero General Harry C. Trexler donated land to his community. He turned 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 and in 2003 we celebrated our 75th Anniversary.
Today, premier attributes of this 900 acre Scout Reservation include: Separate Boy Scout and Cub Scout Resident Camps, Cub Scout Day Camps, two lakes with Fishing, Boating, and Canoeing, along with two staffed waterfronts. The reservation also has over 25 miles of hiking and orienteering trails to offer.
Settlers Camp, the reservation's Boy Scout Resident Camp has individual features such as Archery and Rifle Ranges, and one of the largest C.O.P.E. courses in the Northeast Region of the Boy Scouts of America. The camp also offers its unique Athletics area and an innovative new approach to earning Eagle Merit Badges at camp in a program we call ‘Area 7’. We also have features for age specific groups such as an all new full day First Year Camper Program, and much more! Settlers also has a brand new, state of the art, dining facility that was completely renovated in the Spring of 2003, and expanded in 2006, doubling its previous size.
