Camps Airy & Louise Switch Locations for April Fools Day

Brother-sister camps Camp Airy & Camp Louise in the Catoctin Mountains of Maryland announced a swapping of locations as part of an April Fools Day joke Tuesday.

The Camp Airy and Camp Louise Foundation announced the news on the camps’ Facebook Page:

“After much consideration, the Camp Airy and Camp Louise Foundation has decided to swap locations for  Camp Airy and Camp Louise starting the summer of 2014. Camp Louise will now be located at 14938 Old Camp Airy Rd., Thurmont, MD 21788, and Camp Airy will now be located at 24959 Pen Mar Rd., Cascade, MD 21719.

“The decision was made after complaints from Airy boys about the ‘Airy Hill’ and the fact that Camp Louise girls ‘get to have the water slides.’ Meanwhile, Louise girls were envious of the large fields and go karting courses that the land at Camp Airy offered.”
