Antietam Recreation specializes in providing family fun in a Christian atmosphere. Attended by over 8,000 people each year, our dinner shows offer a wide array of evening entertainment for all ages. In November and December our holiday show "The Christmas Experience" includes live animals, horse rides, wagon rides, beautiful decorations, delicious meal & dessert, and 2 hour extravaganza show. It's the perfect Christmas tradition! Just in time for spring (March and April), "A Century of Song" is a retro-style dinner show offering a whirlwind trip through America's musical favorites of the last hundred years. If you love rock-n-roll and record players, poodle skirts and swing dancing, then this is the show for you! Includes a diner style meal and dessert sure to please.

I attended Antietam Recreation's "Century of Song" dinner show in April of 2017. I was visiting the area from Washington DC to see a Hagerstown Suns game, and while researching things I could do the night before the game I came across Antietam Recreation. If you're not from the Hagerstown area and don't know what Antietam Recreation is, it can... More

My son has come here with friends many summers for various day camps. Our family has been to Cowboy Christmas and a magic show. Antietam Rec always provides excellent care for its guests in a wonderfully planned camp setting with great facilities and river access.

I was here for the first time as part of a business/family picnic. There were plenty of activities for young and old alike. Lots of shady areas to sit and enjoy the breeze through the trees. I would recommend it if your family or company is looking to find a place to hold a picnic or reunion.

Antietam Recreation has many phases to its Christian mission to the community. My first connection with them was when my grandchildren attended (and learned to swim) one of their weekly summer day camps which attract hundreds of children throughout each summer. The activities include canoeing, hiking, zip line rides (safe for kids), swimming and much more. They also create plays... More

The food was great as was all of the activities. Was nice to be apart of a Christian atmosphere where the Love of God is in the air. The show itself I recommend as well. Merry Christmas and God Bless Antietam Recreation.

I visited Antietam Recreation for an afternoon of fun with UNESCO Center for Peace summer camp and it was nothing but fun! The number one attraction I liked the most was the make shift "rollercoaster" ride where you take a steep dive down a slide into the water. There was everything from kayaking, canoeing, rope swing, mini zip-line, horse rides,... More
