The Masonic Conference Center – Patton Campus is located on just over 20 acres of beautiful hillside property in the heart of Lancaster County, PA. The facilities include an indoor gym, outdoor tennis courts, a half-Olympic sized indoor pool, a state-of-the-art multimedia center, and a variety of styles and sizes of meeting rooms.
We can host up to 162 overnight youth and chaperones, in rooms housing from 2 to 6 people. All campus buildings are air-conditioned, and guest rooms have independent thermostat controls and private baths. This isn’t your average summer “camp,” kids!
The Masonic Conference Center is located on the grounds of the former Thomas Ranken Patton Masonic Institution for Boys, and was renovated in 1983. It was designed for the use of Pennsylvania’s Masonic youth groups, and to serve as home to the Pennsylvania Youth Foundation. Adult Masonic organizations, and substance abuse prevention groups hosted by the Pennsylvania Masonic Foundation for Children, began to use the facility with more frequency. Another extensive renovation in 1998 upgraded the housing and conference facilities to meet adult comfort requirements. With the merger of the two previous foundations, the facilities continue to be used for both youth and adult programs
