Welcome to J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation

J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation is not only a place where Scouts of all ages can develop skills that will last a lifetime but it is a place where friendships are made!  At J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation, our goal is to create a fun and exciting environment where everyone can learn and enjoy the outdoors.  Camp Mack has an extremely dedicated staff that comes every summer to teach and spread their love for the Scouting program.

Conveniently located near the center of the Pennsylvania Dutch Council, J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation is home to the Pennsylvania Dutch Council’s Summer Cub Scout Programs, a variety of District and Council activities throughout the year, and also the Council Training Center where most council adult leader trainings take place.

Alley Action Center

May 19, 2012 marked the opening of the Alley Action Center at Camp Mack.  Made possible through the great generosity of long time Scouting supporters, the Alley Family of Lebanon, the Alley Action Center includes a brand new Camp Fire Circle, New BB and Archery Ranges, and a BMX Pump Bicycle Course.  This area brings new adventures to Camp Mack and brings some old favorites to new facilities that are closer together!
