Cleanup Project at Camp Hidden Falls

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Join Leave No Trace and park rangers for a rare and meaningful volunteer opportunity. This volunteer project involves the removal of an abandoned PVC (plastic) water line within the Camp Hidden Falls section property. Once the site of a scouting camp, the 1,050-acre Camp Hidden Falls is now a lesser-known part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and--as the name suggests--is the hiding place of multiple waterfalls! The event will take place from 9am to 12:30pm.


Please join us for this exclusive opportunity to clean up Camp Hidden Falls and be introduced to the principles of Leave No Trace. An optional guided hike will be provided by former Girl Scouts of Camp Hidden Falls, from 1:00pm - 2:00pm.
