Join us for a memorable camping adventure at Ricketts Glen State Park! Campers come to Briar Bush on Monday, sleep at home, then stay overnight Tuesday-Friday. There’s so much to do, we can’t list it all: safe camping skills, night hikes, creek walks, waterfalls, swimming, songs, s’mores around the campfire, and more. Look forward to a week immersed in nature, teamwork, and self-reliance!
