Camp John H. Ware, III

“Camp John H. Ware, III is a Boy Scout and Cub Scout summer, winter, and weekend camp located in Peach Bottom, Pennsylvania on the Horseshoe Reservation.  It is organized by Boy Scouts of America.  It shares the reservation with Camp Horseshoe, located on the other side of the Octoraro River.  The cm, formerly known as Camp Jubilee, offer a wide variety of activities for young men to participate in while earning merit badges and advancing in rank.

The camp offers its accommodations in all seasons, however it is not staffed throughout the year.  The only time when a full compliment of staff is present is summer camp.  During the winter camping season, the rangers staff the Trading Post, offering food and small souvenirs, including t-shirts and other supplies.

Summer Camp

This is the most popular time at Camp Ware.  Many weeks the camp is filled up to full capacity (250 persons, not including staff), and every area of the camp is open for use…
