What is Camp Blue Diamond?

Located in Central PA near State College and Altoona, Camp Blue Diamond (CBD) is a year-round, ACA accredited,  Christian camp and retreat center.  

CBD is open, but not accepting rental guests or holding events  in the month of March because of the COVID-19 outbreak. We are busy preparing for late spring events and summer camp, as well as doing needed camp maintenance.   

CBD offers 19 co-ed residential, adventure and family summer camps for children, youth and adults. 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. 


Diamond Lake sits at the center of CBD's 238 acre site
