Cascade Lake, Pool & Splash Pad


ABC CARE offers families many choices for an EXCITING summer!

Cascade Lake, Pool & Splash Pad is in the beautiful rolling hills of Hampstead, Maryland, just 7 short miles from Westminster and offers wonderful summer fun opportunities for all our campers.

NEW THIS SUMMER: All ABC Campers will visit the Cascade Lake, Pool & Splash Pad TWO TIMES per week in 2018 (except week of July 2nd and August 27th). Deer Park Sports & Swim Camp, Eldersburg Adventure Camp & Southern Carroll Adventure Camp will use this breathtaking location for our summer field trips in 2018.

This field trip location features a huge lake with waterslide, zero entry pool with water slides, splash n' play zone, large covered pavilion with picnic tables, grassy fields for active play, stream exploration, fishing and hiking.

Set on 70 acres, the field trip location features a spring-fed lake with a gentle sloping bottom, guarded by Red Cross certified life guards. The lake includes a 150 ft. water slide and two smaller water tubes. Your camper can also enjoy pedal boats, fishing, hiking and exploration in the creek.

Lake swimming not for you? Then enjoy the Splash 
N Play Zone that features water fun but no standing water. A large cascading mushroom umbrella showers campers with water.  Campers take aim with water cannons and spray guns to keep the good times flowing.

Our field trip location has exclusive private use of the zero entry pool and water slide. The pool is a gated area with a covered, shaded pavilion and many picnic tables to relax or eat lunch at with friends new and old. The pool complex has its own bathroom/changing areas all supervised by ABC Care Camp directors and Counselors.Campers can take part in basketball, volleyball, badminton or group games in the large grassy area in addition to swimming within the gated pool complex.

Swim Lessons are offered both field trip days.  ABC Care has Red Cross Certified Lifeguards/Swim Instructors teaching swim lessons in the Cascade pool.  Swim lessons are a 30- minute group lesson working at their own level.  From basic water play such as blowing bubbles, to advanced swimming strokes and swimming for distance and endurance. Campers are evaluated weekly to determine if they have mastered the necessary skills to advance to the next level. Families receive a written weekly report from the swim instructor detailing their progress.

Children have the option of packing a PM snack or purchasing from the Cascade Lake Snack Bar. The snack bar features items such as snowballs, soft pretzels, popcorn, cold drinks, ice cream and more!
