Independent Lake Camp

A Summer Camp in the Pocono Mountains

About Independent Lake Camp

Independent Lake Camp (ILC), founded by Dan and Anne Gould more than 24 years ago, endeavors to maintain and grow a recreational environment full of enriching and fun programs. The organization furnishes opportunities for campers to explore and advance their interests through programs in the arts, athletics, rock and roll music, computers, performance, and the circus. Since opening, Independent Lake Camp has grown into a highly respected overnight summer camp for youths in Pennsylvania and beyond.

Recently, ILC hired Phil David, a high school teacher and graduate of Shippensburg University, as its new athletic director. In his leadership role, he will apply athletic experience gained while captaining his alma mater's lacrosse team, and while playing and coaching soccer, softball, and baseball. As a French and American dual citizen, Mr. David enhances the diversity of the ILC community.

Parents considering sending their children to ILC may contact the organization to schedule a tour by going to, or by calling 1-800-399-2267.
