Our Organizational Identity
The New Birth of Freedom Council is serving six counties in South-Central Pennsylvania. The council was formed by a merger of York-Adams Area Council and Keystone Area Council on April 1, 2010.
The New Birth of Freedom Council, headquartered in Mechanicsburg, PA, serves more than 11,400 young people in six counties (Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Perry and York) in south-central Pennsylvania.
The council is the fourth-largest council in Pennsylvania (behind Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Allentown) and is led by over 5,500 volunteers. More than 245 community organizations, representing educational, religious, non-profit, civic, and business organizations join in partnership with the New Birth of Freedom Council by chartering 450 Scouting units (packs, troops, teams, crews, posts and groups).
Conococheague District is one of the six Districts that make up our council. This District is comprised of Franklin and Perry Counties. The name refers to a creek in Franklin County, Pennsylvania and a mountain of the same name in Perry County, Pennsylvania. The mountain is a significant portion of the Tuscarora State Forest, and the creek is a tributary of the Potomac River. The word Conococheague is translated from the Delaware Indian spoken language to mean water of many turns. The area along the creek was home to the first settlement in the area which was referred to as the Conococheague Region and eventually developed into present-day Chambersburg.
The New Birth of Freedom Council owns four council camps, Camp Conewago, Camp Tuckahoe, Hidden Valley Scout Reservation, and Wizard Ranch.
Duncannon Troop 64 is one of twenty-seven troops within the Conococheague District. Facebook: Conococheague.nbof
