June 5, 2013 - Outdoor Fun At Antietam Recreation (Hagerstown, MD)

There are loads of things for a family to do right here in the heart of Maryland but sometimes, we all need to just...get away from everything for a little while. And for that, we think the Antietam Recreation has the ability to turn a weary weekend into one that is fun, outdoorsy and intensely exciting for kids and grownups alike.

Located slightly off the Hagerstown radar, Antietam Recreation is a family-owned business that has been providing endless fun activities for more than three decades. The secluded recreational center is on a thirty two acres site of land which used to be the old Turner Farm. Back in the early 1970’s, the Rotz Family were looking around for a good piece of land that could accommodate their two horses and contain water.

Let’s just say that the owners of Antietam Recreation knows a thing or two about outdoor living and camping - after falling in love as high school sweethearts, the couple were actively involved and worked with the camping environment and industry. They have an extensive resume of working not just with horses and people but also with kids.

The people at Antietam Recreation deserves the success that they have today, they grew from providing 20 campers with facilities and fun games to coping with 350 campers per week! The family works closely with each other in the community and tirelessly contribute towards church and homeschooling society. Many people use Maryland charter bus rental services to come here in groups so that they can enjoy the wonderful dinner shows which are usually performed during the winter months. However, the facilities are available from May right through to September as well. For schedule, timing and show times, we encourage our Maryland charter bus rental customers to visit their website and get in touch with Andy, Jessica, Rob or any other one of their facilitators.

The family have grown to include five children so they DO know how to keep things active and exciting. Antietam Recreation guarantees that the kids are going to go to camp super eager to be in on the games and come home muddy but inspired and exhausted. Activities like playing Capture The Flag in the woods, kayaking, canoeing and horseback riding not only helps with kids’ confidence but it also builds character and instills basic values that are so lost in the modern world that we live in today.

Antietam Recreation is a great place not just for large organization but also provides for a great way to develop teamwork, as a birthday gift, or a getaway with friends. If that sounds interesting, be sure to get in touch with the likes of Bus Rental MD to book your charter bus, party bus, coach charter, mini bus or school bus early in order to avoid disappointment.
