“Our summer camp programs promote the education, creative expression and social growth of special needs youth. Lions Camp Merrick fosters friendships between children facing similar challenges and provides the community and Lions with opportunities for service, philanthropy and leadership.”
Lions Camp Merrick is located on 320 acres on the shores of the Potomac River in southern Maryland. Although only 40 miles away from our nation’s capital, it is truly a world away!
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). The camp is funded by Lions Clubs in the Washington, D.C. and DELMARVA area, grants, private donations and rentals.
Lions Camp Merrick provides a fun and exciting, week-long residential camping experience for children ages 6-16 who are diagnosed diabetic type 1, and children that are hearing or visually impaired. The camp can also accommodate organizations and businesses seeking to coordinate off-site team-building sessions or retreats.
