Welcome to Kirkwood! We’re glad you’re here.
Welcome! Kirkwood is a special place in the Poconos Mountains of Eastern Pennsylvania. We are a summer camp, a retreat center, a place for meetings, for personal retreats, group retreats, events, and weddings. Here you will find opportunities for fun, for growth, for rest and renewal, and to do something a little out of the ordinary.
At Summer Camp at Kirkwood, kids can disconnect from their screens–and have real fun. There’s a lot to do at Kirkwood, but maybe the most important part is not what our kids do–it’s how they do it. No screens means face-to-face relationships, where kids can make friends and learn more about themselves and what they like "offline." Our summer camp staff are hired based on their love for kids, and are needed role models for kids of any age. Kirkwoodcamp.org/summercamp is the place to go for more information, or just click on the "Summer Camp" heading above.
When we're not running summer camp, we have all kinds of groups that use our site, facilities, and amenities. We can accommodate personal retreats, small groups, or groups of up to 80 people year-round, with delicious comfort food served by our kitchen staff, or the space to cook for yourselves.
There's a lot to do here too--we've got a high ropes course, a pond for swimming and boating, a gaga ball court, a hammock village for relaxing, quiet trails for hiking, and plenty of serene spots to sit and think or relax. You will be hard-pressed to find a quieter and prettier spot then ours that is so close to major roads, neat restaurants, ski resorts, and all there is to see in the Poconos. Check out kirkwoodcamp.org/facilities to see more.
Kirkwood is easily accessed from Interstate 80 in Stroudsburg Pa. and is roughly 90 minutes from Philadelphia and Newark Liberty International Airport. We hope to see you soon!
