Camp Winona, in Hughesville, Maryland, recently completed a renovation in 2008.
The camp is comprised of 178 acres. It features lodges, glen shelter units, open fields, and a pond for canoeing and kayaking. Its swimming pool is currently only available for sleep-away camp in the summer.
Facilities Rentable facilities include five lodges and 6 glen shelter units. The maximum capacity for the entire camp is 319. Slideshow, Map
All glen shelter units in this camp feature cots with mattresses, and the number per shelter varies. Exact numbers are available on our registration website (see below).
All bathroom facilities are flush toilets. Because of the weather, hot water is shut off November 1 - April 1. Glen Shelter units are not rented during this time as no adjacent bathroom facilities are availble. Lodges are heated in the winter and provide year-round hot and cold water.
A small stack of split firewood is available at each unit.
Weather warnings are often issued by county. Camp Winona is in Charles County. If threatening weather approaches, take shelter immediately. At Camp Winona troops should evacuate to the basement of the main lodge (Cafritz) during an emergency.
Paper products (toilet paper, paper towels) are NOT PROVIDED at our campsites (including lodges).
Special Dates This camp functions as one of our sleep-away camps during the summer months, which means the camp is closed for troop rental in June, July, and August. For other special dates, see our Important Camp Dates page.
