The mission of Camp Linden arises out of the values of the Philadelphia Ethical
Society which owns the property and operates the Children’s Summer Program.
The mission of Camp Linden is:
- To provide a summer camp experience for inner city children that promotes
appreciation of the natural world, acknowledges the intrinsic worth of all
human beings, and encourages campers to develop self-reliance and
- To provide an opportunity for members of the Society to carry out our
commitment to ethical action by supporting Camp Linden through volunteer
efforts, and financial contributions.
- To provide a place where Society members, and other humanistic
organizations, can hold events and retreats.
- To serve as responsible stewards of the land and preserve it as a place to
commune with the natural world.
The primary mission is the Children’s Summer Program, and other uses of the
property contribute to the support of that program.
