Resica Falls

Situated in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, Resica Falls Scout Reservation is a 4200+ acre Scouting Paradise.  Set in what seems like an endless track of mountain trails, clear streams, and waterfalls is an amazing program of activities for Scouts to enjoy for their summer camp experience.

Founded in 1957 by a joint effort between the Valley Forge and Philadelphia Councils to create a huge parcel of land for scouts to use for generations to come.  Although the Valley Forge Council would become the sole propreitior of the property in 1965, these same two councils would merge in 1996 creating the Cradle of Liberty Council where Scouts from Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties would once again find themselves stewards of this wilderness treasure.  The Council would later enter into a land trust agreement preserving the property forever as an undeveloped forest for Scouting use.  In 2007, Resica Falls celebrated its 50th summer season of scout camping.  Since its founding, tens of thousands of Scouts have enjoyed an experience among the hidden natural treasures creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) Restricted for Bridge Replacement Project in Montgomery County

A project to replace three bridges in poor condition carrying Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) over Unami Creek, Ridge Valley Creek and the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek.

Lane restrictions with flagging are planned at the following locations:

  • Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) between Long Mill Road and Shady Lane in Upper Salford Township;
  • Intersection of Perkiomenville Road and Old Skippack Road in Upper Salford Township; and
  • Intersection of Route 29 (Gravel Pike), Crusher Road and Upper Ridge Road in Marlborough Township.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent and subject to change.

For this transportation improvement project, Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) is expected to be closed and detoured in May 2019 through November 2019 for the construction of new bridges over Unami Creek and Ridge Valley Creek. Work is planned on both bridges simultaneously to minimize traffic impacts.

The Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) bridge over the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek will remain open during construction as the bridge will be built in stages using half-width construction. This work is expected to begin this spring and finish in spring 2020.
