Camp Ichthus

Camp Ichthus is a summer camp facility located near Palmerton, PA.  Owned and operated by the First Baptist Church of Bethlehem, PA, this great campground is nestled in the Pocono Mountains and easily accessed from the North East Extension (Rt. 476).

The facility includes a large camp lodge with modern kitchen facility, dining area, meeting room with a beautiful stone fireplace and bunkroom for sleeping.  A large pavilion is ideal for church picnics and summer camp crafts.  There are a number of cabins on site providing opportunity for summer camping ministry.  An outdoor chapel in the pines offers those at the camp a chance to worship and praise our Lord in the midst of his creation and a large fire circle at the top of the mountain allows campers a panoramic view of the Pocono's during the day and the starry evening sky at night.

With long flat fields, there is plenty of room for activities during the day right at Camp Ichthus and being in close proximity to Blue Mountain Ski Lodge and other Pocono attractions makes the facility an ideal spot for Youth Retreats and Summer Church events.

There are plans to add a gym to the campground as well as make other improvements.
