Sandy Hill Camp & Retreat Center

About Sandy Hill Camp & Retreat Center

Since 1995, Sandy Hill Camp and Retreat Center has offered one- and two-week action-packed, traditional, residential camp experiences for children ages 8-16 on our 211 scenic acres overlooking the Upper Chesapeake Bay in North East, Maryland. Coupled with large group retreats in the spring and fall seasons, Sandy Hill is well-known for outdoor adventure and relaxation. We are family-owned and operated, licensed, and ACA-accredited.

Each summer, over 160 people from all across the USA and nearly 20 countries around the world gather in Maryland to create our summer camp staff. Dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of our campers by being exceptional adult role models and by putting the needs of their campers ahead of their own, the staff creates the heart of the Sandy Hill Camp experience. The staff is what makes Sandy Hill Camp truly amazing!

If you love kids, and you want to have the summer of a lifetime, then join the 2022 Sandy Hill Camp Summer Staff!

“The experience I had at Sandy Hill was incredible! All of the staff are super nice and interesting and the Summer of 2019 had 40% international staff, making it a great experience to get to know people from all around the world. Sandy Hill does a great job of finding your strengths and building on them and there is definitely a role for everyone on their staff!”

Senior Counselor

June 2016 - August 2016 North East, MD
“It was great to be able to practice my leadership skills by leading three or four classes throughout the summer to small classes of students. I also loved how the counselors are recruited from all over the world so I was able to make a diverse group of friends and learn so much about their cultures and countries.”
