Amenities

Camp Mary Mac is a spacious setting near Sharpsburg MD with capacity for 60 overnight campers. Set in the rolling hills of Washington County’s native forest and stream; there are many well maintained camp fields, meadows, and paths. Camp Mary Mac is a controlled natural environment dedicated to small community interaction, introspection, and fellowship. Mowed fields and primary paths, wooded trails, seated bonfire areas, abundant wildlife, playground equipment, and grass play areas encourage wholesome outdoor activities and opportunities for group interaction and personal reflection.

To help keep our rates as affordable as possible, we ask guests and campers to provide their own towels, bed linen, blankets or sleeping bag, pillow, and toiletries.  

Guest Facilities

We maintain three widely separated campsites, each with two 10-person cabins, a covered fire pit, covered picnic tables, and cold water supply. To maintain a primitive natural camping environment, electricity is not provided at the campsites, but firewood is. The cabins are furnished with bunk beds, and mattresses. Tent camping (in pre-arranged areas) is also available. Sustained stewardship of this ecologically balanced property maintains an idyllic and natural camping environment. Our usage policy is to take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, and depart renewed.

Two separate covered pavilions are available for large and small group activities, e.g., arts & crafts, talent shows, morning and/or evening vespers, bible study, or other large and small group activities.

A modern, centrally located Bath House with flush toilets, hot water showers, and electricity is provided. Group meal services are available, with advanced Camp Manager coordination. Our large, screened-in Dining/Activities Hall provides a focal point for retreat gatherings. The Dining Hall is equipped with a modern and well equipped kitchen (authorized personnel only), picnic tables, a fireplace, a large movie screen, a laptop-projector, and a community refrigerator. Ice for coolers is available with prior request.

On Saturday, April 29th the Christian Church Capital Area will gather from near and far to celebrate two momentous occasions: the 50th Anniversary of the purchase of the land which became Camp Mary Mac and the completion of the Dining Hall and Kitchen renovations which were part of the Share The Light Capital Campaign.

PUBLIC WELCOME - CAMP TOURS WILL BE PROVIDED TOO.

The celebration, which will be at the Camp near Sharpsburg, Maryland, will run from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and will include a dedication ceremony for the Shorty & Thelma Mellott Dining Hall, tours of the facility, and a chicken picnic dinner as a gift to all those who attend. Camp Mary Mac Angels will be honored, as well as the new generation o...f stewards who have stepped up to help take care of our beloved campsite.  Information about the next phases of the upgrades to the camp, both the completion of the staff quarters and the "Adopt-A-Cabin" program to repair and improve the cabins, will be shared.

Please RSVP to m.cline@myactv.net (Mike Cline, Camp MM Mgmt Committee Co-Chair). He will be ordering the food for the Celebration Lunch (no charge to attendees) so he would like to get a count of likely attendees. Please RSVP to Mike's email directly.  There will be shuttle van service between the parking area in the big Camp MM meadow and the Dining Hall where the Celebration, Dedication, and Chicken Dinner Picnic will be held. The Mgmt Committee will shuttle attendees back and forth to the parking area before and after the event
