Camp West Mar!

The YMCA of Frederick County operates beautiful Camp West Mar, a 72-acre Overnight and Day Camp in the foothills of the stunning Catoctin Mountains. While the American Legion owns the property, we are ecstatic to have the opportunity to host our summer camps in this incredible location. YMCA Camp West Mar gives campers an amazing opportunity to both experience the rugged beauty of the Catoctin Mountains and have the exciting camp experience we all dreamed of as kids.

Campers have daily outdoor adventures and engage with each other in nature:

  • archery
  • canoeing
  • fishing
  • hiking
  • giant swing
  • ropes course
  • team challenges
  • swimming (in our sparkling outdoor swimming pool)
  • and much more (outdoor basketball courts, hammock village, camp fires, gaga ball)

Campers can choose day camp or maximize the fun by sleeping in one of our comfy on site cabins for the week in our Overnight Camp.
