June Session

Our June Session is the perfect way to start the summer. Campers spend three weeks in the refreshing climate of the Blue Ridge Mountains playing, learning, and living with girls from across the country. Each camper creates a custom schedule filled with activities of her choosing from our diverse offerings of programming. New friendships, exciting outings, and lifetime experiences are just the beginning of the fun we have during our June Session. Highlights of the session include Christmas in June, the Red/Blue Soccer Game, and Mardi Gras. Girls entering 1st through 11th grades are eligible to attend.

July Session

Our July session is a traditional four-week session. Much like our June session, campers design their own schedules, make great friendships, and experience the fun and wonders that Camp Glen Arden’s program provides. In addition to our regular program, longer outing trips of hiking, climbing, and paddling are offered to some of our area’s most spectacular parks, rocks, and rivers. Camp celebrations and competitions include Christmas in July, the Fourth of July, the Giant Relay, and the Red Blue Swim Meet. Girls entering 1st through 11th grades are eligible to attend.

Mini Session I & II

Our 1st and 2nd mini-sessions give younger campers a taste of the wonderful traditions of Camp Glen Arden. Girls entering 1st through 6th grade are eligible to attend and will participate in the first two weeks of the June or July sessions. Campers live with girls their age and participate in the same activities as the June or July session campers. A special farewell ceremony is held for the campers at the end of the session, and each camper is recognized for her accomplishments during this time. This session is limited to twenty campers and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Mini Session III

Our mini-session III is a standalone two-week session for girls entering 1st through 11th grades. This session is perfect for the camper looking for a session that is longer than a week but shorter than three or four weeks. During the two week session, campers have access to the same activities offered during our longer sessions and have the option to attend multiple years. We take the same safe, loving, camp experience that we offer to our longer term campers, and we extend it to our mini-session campers on a shorter schedule. It is a time to explore, to grow and to make new friends. There are campfires and cookouts and chances to try all sorts of new things!
