About Shepherd's Spring, Inc.

Shepherd's Spring Summer Camp is situated on 220, remote acres in historic Sharpsburg, MD. During the summer, we host campers from age 6 and up in a wide variety of action-packed programs! During Spring and Fall we run a cultural/outdoor education program called the Global Village.

Although we are a Christian organization, we do not teach Christian principles at every camp we offer. Nor are the majority of Global Village programs faith-based. Guests can select between faith-based, non-faith-based, and family camps from June to August.

The 2024 theme is "Timeless" - travel through time to experience big moments in history! Be sure to bring your poodle skirts, moon landing gear, and dinosaur repellant.

2024 Schedule:
1.Classic Camp I & Classic Camp II - overnight campers engage in hiking, biking, swimming, tubing, singing, crafting, & more while studying God's Word.
2.Adventure Lite, Adventure Mod, & Aslan Amped - three camps designed to pump your adrenaline & push you out of your comfort zone! Camps & activities are organized based on age & level of challenge. Examples include biking, canoeing, rafting, caving, tent camping, & backpacking.
3.Global Citizen Camp - partners with our educational Global Village program to introduce campers to life in other cultures. We discuss what it means to be a strong global citizen with cultural awareness, empathy, & compassion. Campers experience aspects of life that people in varying levels of wealth & poverty face every day. Camp activities include farm chores, water sampling via canoe, cultural crafts & cuisine, homesteading skills, tent camping, & service projects.
4.Family Camps - family members age 6-99 experience three days of Classic Camp activities together. Campers may choose to stay in cabins or hotel-style rooms.

We are looking for seasonal staff and interns that are passionate and enthusiastic about pushing kids outside their comfort zone. Our mission is to engage, inspire, and cultivate life-long learning! See our website for dates, more details, and the staff application!
