Our off-season Outdoor Center is a way we extend the CDW experience to a wider community, including many who are unable to attend camp during the summer. We work to instill our values through our Retreat and Outdoor School programs, and continue to carry out our mission after camp ends. We provide a simple yet comfortable camp experience in a peaceful setting, where all are treated with respect and accepted as part of the extended CDW community.

With a variety of programming, and the flexibility to customize your group’s Camp Dark Waters experience, we are a unique retreat venue and provider of an outdoor classroom setting. Our Outdoor School brings students out of the classroom into a new and exciting environment, here in the Greater Philadelphia region. We offer plenty of programming to keep kids engaged for a one-day trip to a multiple day outing. Our Retreat Group programming  gives an overnight camp experience to groups anywhere from church retreats to family reunions. 

Camp Dark Waters and its facilities are ACA approved. We accommodate conferences, retreats and outdoor education in the fall and spring pre and post-camp seasons. Our high and low ropes courses are inspected annually and meet or exceed ACCT specification standards.
