YMCA Camp West Mar

The YMCA of Frederick County operates a 72 acre residential camp located at 14509 Brown Road in the foothills of the Catoctin Mountains.

YMCA Camp West Mar gives kids a perfect opportunity to experience all the best of the great outdoors. Campers will enjoy pool time, hiking, craft projects, outdoor games, canoeing, archery, and more.

We have created an environment that promotes youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility; while also preserving the legacy of the American Legion owned camp.

YMCA Camp West Mar offers wonderful opportunities to the Frederick and surrounding communities, including day camps, week long sleep-away camps, and camp rental for events or conferences.
