Located in Central PA near State College and Altoona, Camp Blue Diamond (CBD) is a year-round, ACA accredited, Christian camp and retreat center.
Changes caused by Corona Virus Pandemic:
The Camp Blue Diamond's RV Campground and rental Cabins are now open. Huntingdon County is in the PA Yellow Phase so we can accommodate cabin and pavilion groups of up to 25. Groups need to practice social distancing and wear masks when visiting with camp staff or other groups. You may contact the camp office for details or to make a reservation.
Because of state restrictions and guidelines, Camp Blue Diamond will not offer summer resident camp in 2020. CBD will be offering a virtual camp experience, Camp Connects, for children and youth. This will include Bible studies, crafts, music and nature activities. To sign up for Camp Connect go to the Camp Connects page under the Camps tab. CBD is planning to hold two Family Camps in August.
CBD will offer co-ed residential, adventure and family summer camps for children, youth and adults in 2021. Information about these camps, and registration will begin in November. CBD is home to the Centre County Camp Cadet and Penn State's Shaver's Creek Outdoor School.
CBD has a lodge, cabins, pavilions and a 46 site RV & tent campground available to family, church, school and not-for-profit groups for rental. Camp can accommodate up to 180 guests. Alcohol, vaping, tobacco, and motorized recreational vehicles are not permitted. Pets only in the RV campground. Firearms only allowed by hunters during hunting season.
Every child attending CBD will have the opportunity to:
1. Grow in Faith
2. Make new Friends
3. Choose a new Experience or Adventure
4. Most importantly - Have Fun!
