Rodney Scout Reservation

Rodney Scout Reservation rests on 944 acres of rolling upland woodlands at the head of the Chesapeake Bay and boasts of over a mile of prime Chesapeake Bay waterfront. Rodney has been in continuous operation since 1923.

Located in Cecil County, Maryland, only a short drive from Interstate 95 and Maryland Route 40 near the town of North East, this great location provides easy access from Baltimore, Washington, Philadelphia, Wilmington, and New Jersey. 

Well known for the strongest program, best facilities, and premier location on the Chesapeake Bay, Rodney Scout Reservation excels in delivering life-changing lessons and memories to our campers. 

The Brownsea First Year Camper Program is known nationally through Scouting magazine for starting campers out on a Scouting career that launches them toward the lofty pinnacle of Eagle Scout. The Sailing Base and Aquatics Programs are conducted on the natural waters of the Chesapeake and in our pool with three deep ends! The N.E.S.T. Center (Nature, Ecology, Science and Technology) delivers the highest quality environmental and technology instruction through a facility with full computer and science laboratories. The Health & Fitness area includes personal fitness and cycling activities on our Trek mountain bikes. The recently renamed Bull Mountain Studios not only includes the traditional camp handicraft programs but also Movie Making, Photography, Music, Graphic Arts and more! Shooting Sports are conducted on our three ranges in archery, shotgun, and rifle. Traditional Scoutcraft skills are practiced in our all-new Scoutcraft pavilion and Climbing & Rappelling, and even ice climbing and night climbing are conducted on our tower! 

Our programs for older Scouts 14 years and above include the Advanced Camper Experience (A.C.E.) where Scouts experience a wide variety of advanced activities including paintball, paddle boarding, and drone racing!

No matter the age of the Scouts, they are sure to leave Rodney Scout Reservation with fond memories and skills to last a lifetime!
