Tucked away in the mountains of North Carolina, Camp Glen Arden began as a private overnight summer camp for girls nearly 70 years ago and has been positively influencing young women since then.
The campus is nestled among the rhododendron and evergreens in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina.
We are conveniently located
We focus on developing well-rounded, wholesome individuals who, removed from the distractions of technology and social media, encourage one another in learning new life skills and developing meaningful friendships.
Glen Arden’s sessions serve girls from 1st through 11th grades, and we offer 2, 3, & 4 week options.
We believe time invested at Glen Arden builds well-rounded, independent individuals. Glen Arden embraces the responsibility and opportunity of helping campers develop spiritually-inspired, noble, and well-lived lives.
This is a place where love exists unconditionally and encouragement is second-nature.
We teach each camper to appreciate the things in life that have enduring value – the beauty of nature, the value of health and physical strength, the fellowship of true friends and the intrinsic worth of sound ideas and strong character.
We succeed in our purpose by enabling campers to become emotionally, physically and spiritually strong so they can meet the needs of this rapidly changing world.
As Glen Arden girls grow up and beyond, we trust the memories of camp will go with them wherever they may go.
“My daughter stayed this summer for three weeks and she loved it. Equally as important, as a dad I felt she was in the best of hands. The counselors were sweet with warm hugs for my girl on her first day and I think she would’ve stayed for a month if I’d let her.”
