Camps Airy & Louise are brother-sister single-gender camps for boys and girls, located in Thurmont, MD and Cascade, MD. Every summer, we host campers ages 7-17, who participate in a diverse range of activities, including sports, extreme sports, arts, music, drama, swimming, and a wide variety of outdoor activities. Camp staff members describe their jobs as challenging, yet extremely rewarding. They get to meet people from all over the world, and make a huge positive impact on the lives of the campers they work with.
