Furnace Hills

Camp Furnace Hills, located in Lancaster County, while small, offers the full range of Girl Scout progressive outdoor overnight experiences. From rustic cabins, to a modern lodge, and a former personal residence, Camp Furnace Hills offers individual overnight units for groups ranging in size from 17 to 40.

Camp Furnace Hills presents the opportunity for historical programming centered around an 18th century German bank house known as Foxfire House. The volunteer led Foxfire programming team leads scheduled activities and is available for small group requests for additional events.
