Since 1928 Camp Dark Waters and its Conference Center have offered the perfect, scenic setting for groups of all ages to come together and canoeing share simple living in a quiet woodland setting.
We provide a friendly, rustic setting in which schools, churches, families, clubs, scouts, social and civic groups can gather together in fellowship for workshops, retreats, reunions, youth gatherings, picnics and celebrations.
Here, friendships develop, groups build unity and individuals benefit from a new sense of self- low wall worth and personal confidence. In the peace and quiet of this setting, we've helped groups to develop a fresh understanding, new insight, and a spiritual renewal through the uplifting Team Challenge Course, canoeing, and the CDW group living experience.
Whatever your group goals, Camp Dark Waters Conference Center can help you achieve them. You can feel a thousand miles away, but we're just 17 short miles from Philadelphia. With our facilities and programs, our magpie group convenient location and our affordable rates, Camp Dark Waters Conference Center could be the perfect location for your next group outing.

Camp Dark Waters and its facilities are ACA approved. We accommodate conferences, retreats and outdoor education in the fall and spring pre and post-camp seasons. Our high and low ropes courses are inspected annually and meet or exceed ACCT specification standards.
Where We Work
What We Do
The students at the Outdoor School are active students, participating in their own education. They become lifelong students who continue to grow, and to look at the world with wonder and curiosity, and who continue to learn long after their diploma says their classroom education is over.
