Girls need a place to

  • be mischievous, but reverent
  • be sloppy, but clean
  • be tired, but happy
  • be creative and collaborative
  • be well-mannered, but love a good puddle-stomp
  • enjoy every lesson nature teaches

Glen Arden is a place where every girl has a voice & every voice is heard.

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.

Our hope

As Glen Arden girls grow up and beyond, we trust the memories of camp will go with them wherever they may go.

Glen Arden is a nurturing place

“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.”
