Deer Park Adventure Camp



Our fantastic and fun Deer Park Adventure Camp is located at Deer Park United Methodist Church, just a mile off of Route 97 on the corner of Route 32 (Sykesville Road) and Deer Park Road in Westminster, Maryland. The location backs onto Deer Park Recreation Park and features a beautiful outdoor pavilion, opportunities to venture into the park for activities on the playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, large fields for sports and a small pond for fishing!

Mondays are Sports Days at Deer Park Adventure Camp!  Basketball, soccer, tennis, kickball and more!  Cool off on Mondays with a visit from the Kona Ice Truck each week.  Use the flavor wave to find your perfect combination of flavors!  Each Tuesday take a field trip to Piney Run Park.  We will be fishing off the dock and taking advantage of the basketball courts, tennis courts, playgrounds and hiking trails the park has to offer.  Hands on Science on Wednesdays with STEM Day!  Our field trip on Thursday takes us to Piney Run Park for a Nature Program from the Park Naturalists.  Wrap up the week with the Fun Friday Event!

Camper days will be filled with adventure, but additionally, our campers have the opportunity to participate in team building activities and team sports. Click on the "Camp Calendar" link (to the right) to see a day-by-day breakdown of activities at camp!
