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.

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

Thanks to Antietam Recreation for 2015 The Christmas Experience. A new presentation following the show loved by all Cowboy Christmas which was a favorite of all! The Rotz Family provides a Christian summer camp for youth. So why not bring great entertainment during the months when the camp isn't in operation? The Rotz Family has amazing talent and enjoys seeing... 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

Had a wonderful time with my family and friends! The food was delicious, entertainment was outstanding, and overall atmosphere was genuine. I loved the cowboy theme, but also loved that they added the real reason for the season: Christ. I highly recommend this show to families and others alike. I can guarantee it won't be my last time visiting Antietam... More

Went on group bus trip to this show. Knew nothing about it before, not even sure where it was. We were offered outdoor activities, but it was cold, so our group went inside. We stood in line, outdoors, to wait for photos with the horse. When we finally got in, we could go get hot cider, coffee, or hot cocoa.... More
