Description

Lions Camp Merrick is located on 320 acres in southern Maryland, on the shores of the Potomac River, about 40 miles south of our nations capital, Washington DC. Lions Camp Merrick provides week-long residential camping experiences for children who are deaf, hard-of-hearing or visually impaired, and children with diabetes, ages 6 -16. Additionally the camp provides many shorter weekend retreats and day long sessions for related activities, including Scouting and 4-H. The camp is owned and operated by the Lions Clubs of District 22-C (Washington D. C. and Calvert, Charles, Montgomery, Prince George's and St. Mary's counties in Maryland). Monetary support is provided by local Lions Clubs throughout Maryland, Washington D.C., Delaware and Northern Virginia, area businesses and individual contributions.



Welcome to Lions Camp Merrick. Through the use of Internet technology and the marvel of digital images, we will take you on a virtual

tour of the Camp. Our tour begins at the main entrance. The staff has made a huge banner to welcome us. A slightly different banner will welcome you when you get to Lions Camp Merrick this summer.We have many fine cabins and buildings for your use while at the camp. Here are some of the camp's bunkhouses. Let's see where you will be staying for this years camp. Let's take a look inside.



Campers of all ages are special to us at Lions Camp Merrick. For many, camping experiences provide a child's first opportunity to live "away from home" for a week. Thank you for your interest in a staff and/or volunteer position at Lions Camp Merrick in Nanjemoy, Maryland. Our camp is among the very best in the Mid-Atlantic region and our programs for Deaf, hard-of-hearing (HOH) and kids of deaf adults (KODA), along with the Lions Camp Merrick/Glyndon Diabetes Program are second to none.
