Located in Central PA near State College and Altoona, Camp Blue Diamond (CBD) is a year-round, ACA accredited, Christian camp and retreat center.
Recently, as part of CBD's Camp Connect, Camp shot some drone footage of the CBD property and lake. Check out the extremely cool videos on the Drone Videos webpage, under the Facilities drop-down tab.
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 Green Phase so we can accommodate cabin, lodge and pavilion groups. 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 for children in 2020. We will be holding two Family Camps in August.
Due to state restrictions on the size of crowds, there will be no Heritage Fair at CBD this September. The Camp and District are sponsoring a Virtual Heritage Fair. To discover how you and your church can participate go to the 'Virtual Heritage Fair' webpage.
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!
1. CBD is ACA accredited summer camp, meeting over 150 camp industry standards..
2. CBD is well supported by friends and churches, so our fees are less than comparable camps.
3. CBD is a beautiful and well-maintained facility with available lodge and cabin rentals for church, school, family and non-profit groups.
4. Discounts are available for families with more than 1 camper.
5. Scholarships are available to those with financial need.
