Camp's Description

Located on over 600 acres of scenic woodlands, Camp Mason is a unique blend of traditional and adventure summer camp. We have been building character since 1900 by emphasizing the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Campers choose their activities, allowing them to customize their camp experience. Our wide variety of options include basketball, archery, swimming in our pool, skate boarding, soccer, boating and canoeing, arts & crafts, ceramics, mountain biking, rock climbing, fishing, and more. Like horses? Camp Mason offers daily horseback riding lessons for all skill levels featuring trail rides around camp. Love horses? Try our Diamond M Ranch Camp! Each camper is paired with a horse and takes part in feeding, tacking, grooming, and other responsibilities. Itís not all work of course- we also get to do plenty of Western Style riding! Up for something adventurous? Campers have the option of signing up for daily half day, full day, and overnight trips in the area. Popular trips include hiking to beautiful waterfalls, tubing on the Delaware River, climbing at a real rock face, and taking a dip in local lakes. For those interested in a real wilderness experience try our Adventure Bound Treks program. We offer 6 to 13 day camping trips for small groups of 11 to 16 year olds. Want more information about Camp Mason? Please visit our website. We offer personal tours of our beautiful, modern facility all year long; just give us a call to schedule a time convenient for you. Any questions? Contact Wes Supper, our Summer Camp Director. See you this summer!

My 9 year old daughter just returned from a week at Camp Mason as a first year camper. She had a fantastic experience with only positive things to say, and this is coming from a "glass half empty" kid. I was really impressed with how professional and organized the entire camp is. The staff and counselors were all friendly and my daughter liked everyone she met, especially her counselors and cabin mates. The cabins were great, in good shape and with their own bathrooms, sturdy bunks, very clean. She even liked the food! The activities sounded great and she enjoyed all of them, including an off-site trip. I was really nervous sending her off to camp for the first time, but Camp Mason was a fantastic fit and they took great care of her for the week. I was really impressed that someone from the camp called me mid-week to give me an update of how she was doing; this was a really wonderful touch and set my mind at ease. Also this blew me away: we got home and I looked through her suitcase and said "why didn't you wear any of these clothes we packed?" they were all folded neatly and organized as they were the day she left. Even her sleeping bag was folded and put away in it's stuff sack with care. She said they're actually dirty, but one of the CITs came and helped me pack up, so we folded them back up and packed them neatly. For a kid with ADHD, she came back only having lost a pair of swim goggles. I was really amazed. I knew it would be a great week for her, but the extra care and attention they showed the younger kids was above-and-beyond. She will be back next summer!
