Company Profile

Camp Lohikan in the Pocono Mountains

Company Overview

Camp Lohikan is a traditional summer camp for boys and girls of the ages 6 to 15. We are located in the Pocono Mts. of northeastern Pennsylvania in the village of Lake Como. We're about 2.5 hours from New York City.
Camp Lohikan has been operated by the Buynak Family since 1957. We are warm, welcoming camp community dedicated to caring for our campers and staff. Our goal is to provide an environment of support and encouragement where children will try new things and grow in the process. We are searching for individuals who are kind and willing to put kids first always.
Our daily program features more than 65 arts, sports and adventure activities. Campers entering 6th grade and older get to choose all of their activities. Young campers travel with their counselors as a cabin group.
While we have a very active inter-camp games program, Camp Lohikan is not considered a competitive camp. Beginner through advanced instruction is provided in all of the activities we offer. Our emphasis is on FUN, participation and sportsmanship, not winning or losing.
The camp personality is very friendly. This is not a "fashion" camp. Kids come to Lohikan to make friends, learn new skills and most of all have FUN.
We take great pride in our staff. Most of our staff members are returning and they set the tone for the camp which is known for its caring, nurturing atmosphere. High energy, mature individuals who enjoy working with kids, and want to make a positive impact upon young people, are encouraged to apply!

You will too! Nothing will tug at your heart more than the memories from your camp years!
