Camp Neidig Recap (Live/Hybrid)

Camp Neidig was created by Joseph S. Neidig, governing officer of Rotary District 2654, in 1950. During his term as governing officer, Neidig founded the "Leaders of Tomorrow," a camp at Camp Delmont in Green Lane, Pennsylvania. The purpose of this camp was to further the leadership abilities of young boys.

After District 2654 split in 1961, the newly-formed District 7430 decided to rename the camp "Camp Neidig" in honor of the camp's founder.

In 1990, females were invited to camp for the first time, as Camp Neidig became a co-educational experience. Through 1994, the camp was held at Camp Conrad Weiser in Wernersville. Camp Manatawny near Boyertown then hosted the camp from 1995 through 2000. In 2001, Camp Neidig moved to the Pocono Valley Resort. Three years later, Neidig proudly returned to Camp Manatawny in 2004 where it has been held ever since.
