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?
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.
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.
