Updated: Apr 11

The 80th anniversary of Camp David, the presidential retreat nestled in Maryland's Catoctin Mountain Park, marks a significant milestone in its storied history. Since its establishment by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1942, Camp David has served as a haven for presidents and their guests, providing a secluded setting for diplomacy, relaxation, and reflection amidst the natural beauty of the Appalachian Mountains. Over the decades, Camp David has played host to numerous historic events, including peace negotiations, summit meetings, and presidential retreats, shaping its legacy as a symbol of American leadership and resilience. As Camp David commemorates eight decades of service to the nation, it continues to embody the values of security, diplomacy, and tranquility that have defined its role in American history.
