Heart bombing at camp!

Check out our heart bomb campaign on February 17, featured on WBRE and WNEP!
Members of the volunteer group Supporters of Camp Archbald (SoCA) “heart bombed” at Camp Archbald to show their love and support for the 99 year old camp that is under potential closure. With signs in hand, dozens of Girl Scouts took pictures all over Camp Archbald to post their message on media in conjunction with Preservation PA. Preservation PA named Camp Archbald one of its top 5 at-risk sites for 2019.
