Camp Michaux is nestled in the ridges of South Mountain, two miles northwest of Pine Grove Furnace State Park. This unique family-friendly opportunity is open to all Dickinsonians.

The site was once a Civilian Conservation Corps Camp (CCC) with ties to the centuries-old iron industry during the Great Depression and a secret Prisoner of War Interrogation Camp during World War II. Come explore the rich interpretive history with site expert David Smith, director of the Camp Michaux Recognition and Development Project. This unique family-friendly opportunity is open to all Dickinsonians. Dress in layers, wear hiking shoes, bring water. Transportation Provided. No cost. This event is part of the "Exploring Our Place Series". This series is designed to create experiential learning opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to come together and learn about places, processes, and people. Participants will be encouraged to broaden their sense of place through hands-on learning. All are welcomed. RSVP requested. For more information, please email.
