Welcome to Camp Sinoquipe Online


Camp Sinoquipe is a beautiful 500 acre rustic Boy Scout camping facility with a 10 acre lake located in a rural area two miles from the village of Fort Littleton, Pennsylvania, in Fulton County.  We are 120 miles from Baltimore, 115 miles from DC, and 65 miles from Harrisburg


During the summer months, Five weeks, Camp Sinoquipe hosts Boy Scout Troops for from the Mason-Dixon Council and several surrounding Boy Scout Councils from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Further.

Camp Sinoquipe has 12 campsites, each with running water, washstand and a latrine. Campsites vary in size to accommodate 16 to 60 campers. Each campsite’s tents are set up on a platform.  The tent is big enough to hold two campers and has a bunk and mattress for each camper.

The total number of Scouts attending camp each week has been limited to 200 so that each Scout can benefit more from the smaller class size. It would be wise to register soon as slots fill quickly.


Camp Sinoquipe is supported by Guneukitschik Lodge #317, Order of the Arrow. The Lodge has work weekends yearly and does much of the preparation necessary to prepare camp for each season.

Camp Sinoquipe is owned and operated by the Mason-Dixon Boy Scout Council located in Hagerstown, MD.
