A wonderful meeting space for a leadership retreat, awesome staff.
This was my second time camping with my Girl Scout troop at ThorpeWood. My girls love it there! Our first trip, we set up tents behind the Homestead House in the beautiful wooded setting by the pond. The second time this past October, we slept in sleeping bags inside the Homestead House in front of a roaring fire in the wood stove. What a fun and cozy sleepover for my girls! We also had a great time hiking the trails throughout the property and having a big bonfire with skits and s'mores at the fire circle they have set up near the horse stables. And because we are a non-profit Girl Scout troop, we didn't have to pay anything for this wonderful experience! Thanks to Julie and the rest of her staff for making this one of the many awesome ways ThorpeWood can be used.
A unique venue located in the Catoctin Mountains, where individuals and groups can have an exquisite event in a pristine natural setting.

The 155 acre property boasts a rustic timber frame lodge that has a 30-foot stone fireplace, which makes a beautiful backdrop for your wedding and reception.
