Careful Cabin Consideration Fueling Our Bodies & Community
We create cabins of girls with similar interests, while mixing returning campers with our first-year campers. A 3:1 ratio of campers to counselors ensures that each child receives the care and attention she needs. By the end of the summer, girls with whom you share the beautiful

Health & Wellness Our health center team, which includes five nurses and a health center assistant, lives on-site. Our health center is open seven days a week, and a nurse is on call 24 hours a day. We partner with a local pediatrician who sees campers on an as-needed basis. Our nurses are sensitive to the physical and emotional well-being of our campers and deliver plenty of TLC! CAMP LIFE
