About Skycroft

Skycroft is located on almost 300 acres atop beautiful South Mountain in Frederick County, Maryland. Owned and operated by the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware, the center opened in 1977. Development has continued to accommodate 300+ overnight guests year round.

Take advantage of the opportunity to slip away into a quiet spot to reflect, to be re-created, to be refreshed in the beauty of “God’s great outdoors.” We offer a variety of housing accommodations, beautiful surroundings, excellent dining options, warm and friendly service at reasonable rates. Both indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities are available including a high ropes course and confidence course.

Skycroft and the surrounding area are rich in Civil War history, where a significant part of the Battle of South Mountain was fought in 1862.
