Guiding Philosophy

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 to gain a deeper understanding of self as she strengthens her relationships with other people and the world around her.

Our traditional camp experience, beautiful setting and limited enrollment are what set us apart from other camps. Read our mission here.

“What a transformational summer this was for our girls.  Their three weeks at camp Mont Shenandoah gave them self confidence, independence, a sense of personal and communal responsibility as well as a general outlook of kindness, support and generosity toward others.”
