Rodney Scout Reservation

At Rodney Scout Reservation, the camp experience is nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment Troops arrive, they are welcomed into a vibrant community where adventure, friendship, and personal growth abound. 
Imagine waking up to the gentle rustle of leaves and the Chesapeake Bay breeze drifting through your tent. As you step outside, you're greeted by the sight of towering trees, expansive woodlands, and the shimmering waters of the bay in the distance.
Your days are filled with excitement and discovery as you dive into a diverse range of activities and programs. Whether you're navigating the waves during a sailing lesson on the Chesapeake Bay, perfecting your aim at the archery range, or immersing yourself in the wonders of nature at the N.E.S.T. Center, every moment is an opportunity for adventure and learning.
But it's not just about the activities – it's about the connections you make and the friendships you forge along the way. You'll bond with fellow Scouts around the campfire, share stories and laughs during meals, and collaborate with your Patrol on exciting challenges and projects.
As the sun sets and the stars twinkle overhead, you'll gather with your newfound friends for evening activities, from nighttime swims and campfire skits to stargazing and reflection sessions. And, as you crawl into your sleeping bag at the end of each day, you'll carry with you the sense of belonging, accomplishment, and joy that can only be found at Rodney Scout Reservation.
Camp isn't just a place – it's a feeling of adventure, camaraderie, and possibility that you'll carry with you long after your time at Rodney comes to an end. It's an experience that shapes who you are and who you'll become, instilling in you the values of Scouting and leaving you with memories to last a lifetime. Welcome home to Rodney Scout Reservation – where the adventure begins!
