Our Story


Camp Marshall was originally built as a Civilian Conservation Corps Camp in the mid 1930’s. The director’s lodge, the arts and crafts building are the original buildings. The first 25 year lease was given by the state in 1948 for a residential camp program. The sleeping cabins were built during the 1950’s by towns sponsoring 4-H clubs, with each club raising money and materials for a cabin. The property that now makes up the center property was acquired over the 20 year period of the 50’s and 60’s. A combination of purchases and donations has resulted in the present 278 acres, 20 acres of this land is leased from the from the Department of Conservation and Recreation. This includes the horse camp and Buck Hill Conservation Center. In the early 1960’s, 4-H offered two, one-week horse camp sessions during the summer. The original building, a steel barn, was an open sided, clear span building with movable stalls for the horses. As the program grew, wings were built for the additional stalls. In the early 1970’s, Wells Williams Arena and the stalls south of the arena were built for expanded horse and livestock shows. The steel barn was converted to its present condition and named Andrews Hall.

Our facility offers a large commercial kitchen with dining hall, large function hall, and numerous outbuildings for indoor activities. Rustic cabins provide sleeping accommodations for up to 150 people. In addition, athletic fields, 2 shooting areas, and wooded hiking trails are provided for outdoor activities. Our scenic waterfront is the perfect setting for swimming and boating. The equestrian facility features 4 large riding rings, an indoor arena and a cross country course. Our stables can accommodate up to 65 horses and pacious fields and miles of riding trails make this site ideal for any horse related activities. 


Camp Marshall today is not just a summer camp. We currently are open year round and offer a variety of programs, events, along with facility rentals for weddings and other events, along with partnering with many different other organizations.  We have a a year round equine program, programming for girl and boy scout groups, and outdoor educational field trips.
