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.
