My       Experience!

Creating a Lifetime of Memories Since 1924!

Camp Horne provides Scouts the ability to succeed, grow, be carefree and enjoy the endless fun-filled days of summer. Every camper is valued for who they are as an individual, encouraged to try new things and has the opportunity to create their own unique Camp Horne Experience. Our mission is to provide our campers with an environment where they feel comfortable and confident in who they are as a person. That is why every camper says "I am Camp Horne."

Our Program!

Traditional Structure, with the  Freedom  to Choose!

From the moment our campers wake up, until their heads hit the pillow at night, our action-packed days are designed to provide your Scout with an exciting environment where they can learn, laugh, play and enjoy their summer VACATION!

We believe that combining structure and choice into our program allows our campers to experience all aspects of camp, build strong bonds with their friends and get the most out of their summer. 


Our Spirit and Tradition!

It's Addicting, It's Contagious...

As you enter our gates, the rush of the spirit, passion and excitement immediately hits you. You hear the cheers, see the smiles and feel the energy. You quickly understand why our Scouts say that Camp Horne spirit flows through their veins.

You also get a sense of the enormous history Camp Horne has developed since 1924. Our Scouts take great pride in knowing they are part of something bigger than themselves as they walk in the footsteps of the former campers who built traditions that carry on year after year.


The CH spirit and traditions are exhilarating, contagious and lifelong. Once you're a part of Camp Horne, Camp Horne is forever a part of you.

Health and Nutrition!

Mealtimes are a great opportunity for us to take a break and spend time together as a camp family. Our beautiful dining room has troop assigned tables which provide a great atmosphere to eat, talk, sing when we crank up the dining room music and laugh with camp friends. Meals are served cafeteria style and we have substitute bars that provide a number of alternatives for even our pickiest eaters.

Our Food Service Staff is very experienced in handling all types of food allergies including dairy, egg and gluten.

Over the past few years, we have seen a significant rise in the number of campers with allergies and other special food needs. Consequently, our talented Food Service Staff, under the direction of a Licensed Food Nutritionist, work tirelessly to ensure our food service is able to meet the needs of every camper.

Quality Food for Hungry Campers!
