Camp Conestoga

4415 295th Street, New Liberty, IA 52765

Located in a scenic natural area 25 miles northwest of the Quad-Cities, Camp Conestoga lies on 340 rolling, wooded acres.

Camp Conestoga has a pool, shower house, dining hall, trading post, health care center, arts and crafts house, activity pavilions, horse corral and horseback riding trails, archery field, prairie, challenge course with ropes and zip line, sand volleyball court, hiking trails and a lake for canoeing.

The name Conestoga came first from the Susquehannock tribe along the Susquehanna River in south central Pennsylvania. Later, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the Conestoga covered wagon was built and named after the Native American tribe. A camp naming contest was held, and Conestoga was chosen as the camp name in 1946.

The camp was established in 1945 after the Boy Scout camp that Girl Scouts utilized ran out of space.
