What better place is there to camp than the wonderful Catoctin Mountains? Our campers will experience the great outdoors while learning and practicing new skills like archery and canoeing, building relationships, and having a blast. We will be providing lunch & snacks at no additional cost,along with an adventure packed day!

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.

Why not try the overnight experience?

Calling all Day Campers! If you’d like to stay at camp with us one night of the week or if you want to try out our Overnight Camp without signing up for a full week, this program is for you! Every other Wednesday we will have a special experience for all Downtown Y Day Camp and Camp West Mar Day campers at Camp West Mar. We will participate with our Overnight campers in programming until 9:00pm including things like camp fire cooking, s’mores, flash light tag, star gazing, and much more.  We will provide dinner, breakfast and lunch for all participants. 

If you are in a Downtown Y day camp program, we will load the bus at 5:00pm from Staley Park on Wednesday and return in time for your camp’s normal program time.  We will also be sending you back to your camp with a lunch in hand so that you won’t miss a thing.
