About Laurel


Laurel Leaf is a family-friendly spiritual retreat. 

Our goal is to build community through Christian fellowship based on the Lord's Word, including the Heavenly Doctrine as revealed through Emanuel Swedenborg.

We meet every summer at the Laurel Hill State Park in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, roughly 4 hours from Philadelphia or 1 1/2 hours from Pittsburgh.

Browse the Laurel Camp website to find out more about Camp Life, programs for children at camp, and the typical schedule for a day at camp.

Laurel is not a formal organization. It is a group of families and individuals who camp together, each assuming their own risks, and each pitching in according to their ability.  Laurel has been running continuously (give or take a year) since the early 1970s.
