Camp Lohikan had its beginning in 1957 when Mike and Arline Buynak purchased a 68 acre campsite in Lake Como, Pennsylvania. Mike and Arline opened the camp for girls and boys and over the years expanded the facility into the 1200 acre, state of the art, summer camp known as Camp Lohikan.
In 1983 Mike and Arline's son, Mark, assumed the full-time directorship of Camp Lohikan. Mark’s camp experience began as a camper at the age of 5 and over the years included most of the camp's counseling and supervisory positions. First-hand knowledge of camper life means a lot and it's evident in the selection of our child-centered, fun-loving counselors and caring supervisors, the design of the daily program, range of activity choices and even the little, but important, things like how we celebrate camper birthdays and tooth fairy visits!
Hear from Staff
Mark and his wife Sandy live and work on the camp grounds every day of the camp season and actively supervise the campers and the camp program. They interact with the campers and staff on a daily basis. If a problem ever arises, Mark and Sandy are always there to solve it.
Hear from Parents
Mark and Sandy have four children attending Camp Lohikan and understand the concerns parents face when entrusting the care and well-being of their children to others. Their "hands-on" direction ensures that the safety and care of each child is always the highest priority every day of the summer. Camp Lohikan's reputation for quality child care and its tradition of rich summer experiences, wonderful life-long friendships and days filled with non-stop fun continues for its 62nd season with the Buynak family this summer. Summer ‘18 will be Mark's 36th year directing Camp Lohikan and he can't wait for summer to begin!
