PSADLand (Camp)

(PSADLand Camp)

 

PSAD Camp and Training Center is a 156-acre campground where it is located about three miles off from state route 36 near Five Points, Pennsylvania in Clearfield County. Many PSAD members called that camp “PSADLand Camp”. PSAD owns, operates, and maintains the campground. PSAD is currently seeking a fund for camp construction projects as well as maintaining the campground.
