Side Quest: Survey the abandoned buildings of Camp Snyder

If you’re on the hunt for a new adventure, look no further than Climbers Run Nature Preserve. Located on Frogtown Road in Pequea, this 82-acre preserve is one of 44 owned by the Lancaster Conservancy.

It’s a wonderland of babbling brooks, jagged boulders, large rock shelters, and abandoned buildings. All of it begs for exploration. The abandoned buildings and forgotten basketball court once belonged to the Boys and Girls Club of Lancaster, who built them in the early 1960s. At the time, the property was called Camp Snyder and was used as a youth summer camp until the late 2000s.

People should stay outside of these buildings for safety purposes.
