Creating Unforgettable Summers Since 1927

Camp Mont Shenandoah provides a traditional summer camp experience for girls between the ages of 7 and 16. Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains along the pristine Cowpasture River in Bath County, Camp Mont Shenandoah is one of Virginia’s oldest and best-loved overnight camps.
