Camp Hill borough is a beautiful quiet community. The school district is excellent. A small public school with a private school feel. Very walkable. Kids friends are all within walking distance even walk/ride bikes to school. There is no school busing because everyone lives within walking distance of the school. There is public transportation and located close to shopping, parks, public pool, school, library, and restaurants, micro breweries, sporting events, concerts, farmer markets and theaters. We are located 2.5 hours from Philadelphia and DC, 1.5 hrs from Baltimore, 3 hrs from NY, and 4 hrs from Pittsburgh. Penn State fans it is 2 hrs from happy valley. Wonderful safe place to raise a family or retire. Strong supportive community.

Camp Hill is filled with great restaurants, diverse shops, and kind people. Most of the community consists of warm people who share smiles and conversations with each other. Every ethnicity is represented in great numbers and each culture is celebrated through local festivals and celebrations. Shopping is made easy with the amount of accessible malls and centers. Restaurants host tasty foods and shows the true meaning of being involved with the community.
The town of Camp Hill is very safe with an excellent school district. However, many people are openly hostile to those on the lower end of the economic spectrum. If I where to change my community I would want it to be more inclusive of people with different life experiences and backgrounds.
