Sandy Hill has been offering overnight camp experiences for boys and girls ages 8-16 since 1995. Each year, we ask our campers and parents what sets their Sandy Hill Camp experience apart, and here is what they say!
Top 9 Reasons Why Families Choose Sandy Hill
#9 - So Many Activity Choices
Each camper receives a custom schedule based on their preferences from our list of over 40 different activities.

Not only does it make for a beautiful backdrop to camp, but the waterfront is home to some of our most popular activities: waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, and fishing.
#7 The Right Distance from Home
Not too far from home - less than two hours from DC, NOVA, Baltimore, Lancaster, Wilmington, & Philadelphia.
#6 - Short-Term Overnight Sessions
One-week and two-week residential sessions for campers with busy summer schedules and for those not wanting to be away for an entire summer.
#5 - Great Food!
Last summer, in their after-camp survey, campers rated the camp food 3.7 out of 4 with over 80% of our campers giving our camp food the highest rating of “Great!” Click here to learn more about our menu and our accommodations for special dietary needs.
