We also have a number of specialized programs:

Camp William B. Snyder

Located in Prince William County Virginia, Camp William B. Snyder encompasses 350-acres including a managed wetland. Camp Snyder is a premier camping location within the National Capital Area Council, BSA. Our camp has been open to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, and community organizations since 2006. Whether you come to camp, enjoy a high-quality outdoor program, or need an overnight place to stay while visiting Washington, DC, Camp Snyder is here for you!

Camp Howard M. Wall

Located on the southern coast of St. Croix, the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Camp Howard M. Wall is your stepping stone to untold island adventures. Camp Wall is a hidden treasure on the island, offering 17 acres of open campground with beach frontage. In addition to tent camping, the camp includes a main building for orientation, a large full kitchen, three large covered open pavilions, kayaks and royaks, and an amazing view of the Caribbean Sea.  Croix is just a two and a half hour plane ride from Miami. Camp Wall is available all year.

Camp Catoctin BSA

Camp Catoctin BSA (formerly Scout Camp at Airy) is an entirely volunteer-run BSA resident camp operating for one week a year in Thurmont, Maryland. It is staffed almost exclusively by scouters from the Francis Scott Key district in the National Capital Area Council. While we offer the standard fare you may find in many other camps (First Year Camper program, shooting sports, scoutcraft, aquatics), we excel in offering unusual merit badge programs driven by an experienced cadre of subject matter experts. In recent years we have offered Chemistry, Nuclear Science, Exploration, Search and Rescue, and Insect Study, to name a few.
