Camping Program Committee

The Camping Program Committee works with the Camp Program Manager to organize and operate the Yearly Meeting's entire camping program. This includes the three residential camps, Catoctin, Opequon, and Shiloh, as well as the Teen Adventure Program.

The BYM Camps website is available here.

In 2010 and 2011, Baltimore Yearly Meeting undertook a project to consider the vision of the Yearly Meeting community. As a part of that project, each committee was asked to respond to a set of queries that had been promulgated by the ad hoc Visiting Ministers Committee. The Camping Program Committee's responses are available here.
