Guiding Philosophy

Our five virtues are not only character-building, they are the guiding principles around which we design our entire program. This is what we stand for.

Five virtues. One life-altering experience.

Since its inception in 1927, the five virtues of Love, Loyalty, Friendship, Sportsmanship and Spiritual Awareness have served as the guiding principles of Camp Mont Shenandoah.

Camp life is about growth and discovery, strengthening friendships and building self-confidence. Our goal is to help each camper gain a deeper understanding of self as she strengthens her relationships with other people and the world around her.

In a safe and caring environment, our camp provides the setting and structure each girl needs to grow — physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. Through cabin living, fun, challenging activities, relationships with peers and staff, and longstanding traditions, we promote life skills that instill confidence, develop a girl’s sense of self and foster independence.

Our traditional camp experience, beautiful setting along a pristine mountain river, and limited enrollment are what set us apart from other camps. We’ve been creating unforgettable summers since 1927.
