Camp Airy's 450 acres are located in Thurmont, MD, just down the road from our sister camp, Camp Louise. We are ideally situated near state and national parks as well as historic sites, including Gettysburg, Frederick, Hagerstown, Antietam, Harpers Ferry, and Emmitsburg.
Our facilities take advantage of the natural beauty of the area and are designed to enhance the adventures our campers experience every summer.
A 24-hour-a-day, on-site security team, as well as our on-site maintenance staff, work hard to ensure the safety and security of our campers, staff, and facilities at all times.
Camp Airy's on-site Health Center provides 24-hour coverage by licensed medical personel. At all times, there are two physicians and five registered nurses living at camp. Our medical team handles routine first-aid and medical needs, administers medications, and monitors ill campers overnight in our climate controlled Health Center. We also team with the local hospitals near camp in the event of an emergency. Maintaining communications with families of campers in the event of emergencies and overnight stays in the Health Center is a priority for our medical staff.
