Antietam Recreation is named for the Antietam Creek which borders the camp on three sides and for Antietam Battlefield which is a few miles away. Antietam Recreation's secluded 32 acre site was the old Turner Farm and was purchased by the owners in 1971 after a long search for a spot of ground that would contain water or a stream to facilitate a recently inherited canoe and fields and pasture to accommodate their two horses. It is located in a rural area only minutes from Hagerstown and surrounded by woodlands and open fields. It has been a wellspring of fun, recreation, and inspiration to many children, families, groups, and organizations for the last 30 years. The family-owned and operated facility is designed to provide active, exciting, and unique activities in a friendly, Christian atmosphere.
