I took my BSA Troop 32 scouts to the Philly area twice. The first time for a few days and the second for a weeks worth of adventures. There is so much history and so much to see. It was an 8 day trip with the first and last as travel days for us and the 6 in the middle as activity days.


The Philadelphia/West Chester KOA is a great camp ground tucked into the back country of West Chester, PA. It’s right along a narrow river and barely used train tracks. The campground is quiet, clean and enjoyable and makes for a great base camp for all activities in the eastern PA area.

Hikes & Walking Tours

Downtown Philadelphia

It’s very easy to spend 2 to 3 days touring downtown Philly. Wear comfy walking shoes. Parking can be a challenge. Bring quarters for meters or cash for parking lots.
