First and foremost we are a Scout Camp. We are the only Scout Camp located on the Chesapeake Bay and have been open in this location since 1923.

First and foremost we are a Scout Camp. We are the only Scout Camp located on the Chesapeake Bay and have been open in this location since 1923. We are located only a few minutes from I-95 but offer a bit of seclusion from the hustle of the world. Our rolling hills give great opportunities to hike or mountain bike and our 2 beaches give great access to the bay for boating and fishing.

Some days at camp are quiet and private, on others you will hear the laughter of Scouts and see them going about their programs.  Every day here at camp is unique and memorable.

Campsites are assigned based on availability.  If you have a specific request, let us know and we will accommodate if possible.

The people, the campsite, the forest, the beach and the water were great. We are coming back as soon as a site is available.

We arrived close to sunset and checked in with the rangers. There were signs for weekend check-ins that we followed once we got into the camp. They gave us a map and outlined the path to our campsite. The roads are very primitive, so 4 wheel drive would be helpful. We camped at Fisherman’s site. Our campground (and cabin!) was very secluded/quiet, but did have a path that lead to the beach nearby. The rangers came by that night and in the morning to check in and make sure everything was ok and we didn’t have any questions. The space was huge, plenty of room to spread out. There was also a few picnic tables and a large fire pit for us to use. We would definitely come back to this site!

My family and I enjoyed our stay. The space allowed for much needed and overdue bonding. The location was near the water and the birds singing were a wonderful background music. We enjoyed being awakened by the birds' chorus.

What an amazing place! You can tell this is a scout camp because it is so well maintained and laid out. I had the last campsite on the 600 acre property, "Fisherman's" and it was everything I was looking for. Views of the Chesapeake, a feeling of isolation (in a good way) and easy access to the beach where I was able to launch my kayak.
