Camp Catoctin BSA is one of only a few all-volunteer, nationally accredited BSA camps in the United States. Over our 60 year history, Camp Catoctin BSA has evolved from a small weekend camp-out to a week-long resident camp serving over 200 youth. Camp Catoctin staff are local volunteers, trained professionals, and represent generations of Scouts.

Why Camp Catoctin BSA?

Exciting Program

Close out the summer with a bang! Camp Catoctin BSA offers more than 40 merit badges to choose from, including many not offered at traditional scout camps. Whether you're looking for natural face rock climbing, sailing around the lake, taking a stab at hatchet throwing, building a survival shelter, or learning to make gourmet meals in the woods we've got it.

Local Staff

Volunteer staff serve year-round in District, Council, and National positions. We’re often involved in local programming and we’re always around to help finish a badge or lend a hand.

New Scout Program

Our Acorn program is designed to guide youth through the advancement process and teach all the necessary skills for the new scout. Our small staff ratios allow our Acorn staff to get to know your youth and spend the extra time to ensure they succeed.

Older Scout Program

Looking for something new and different? Climb on over to our climbing program where you'll have the opportunity to climb and rappel natural rock faces. Bear Grylls your inspiration? Wilderness survival will give you the opportunity to practice those firestarting skills and learn to build a shelter.

Not Just for Youth!

Don't just let your scouts have the fun. Join our daily CampTalks geared for Scouters on various topics ranging from how to teach EDGE Method) to scouting history.
