Learn local insights about the quintessential West Shore community.
Camp Hill is located in the West Shore region of Cumberland County just two miles southwest of Harrisburg, the state capital of Pennsylvania.
What the small town may lack in a bustling downtown scene, it more than makes up for with its family-friendly setting.
Foremost, the residents of this walkable community love the charming neighborhood full of unique homes and ample sidewalks. To many of its 7,900 residents, Camp Hill is "just home."
But let's take a further look into what makes this West Shore community so special.
Camp Hill History
Camp Hill is not only lovely, but it’s also a historic town.
Most noteworthy, the northernmost Civil War engagement of the Gettysburg campaign took place at the Battle of Sporting Hill in present-day Camp Hill on June 30, 1863.
It seems like the town's name originated from a split in the congregation of Peace Church. One group began having religious camp meetings outdoors on a hill. Consequently, Camp Hill became a borough in 1885.
Camp Hill offers a variety of fantastic education options including public K–12 schools, private institutions, and higher education opportunities such as Messiah College in Mechanicsburg and Central Penn Business College in Summerdale.
Things to Do
There’s plenty to make an adventure seeker’s heart beat faster in the West Shore boroughs.
