Established 65 years ago in the mountains of North Carolina as a private sleepover camp for girls, Camp Glen Arden has been positively influencing the growth and maturity of young women for generations. Our camp focuses on developing well-rounded, wholesome individuals who, removed from the distractions of technology and social media, raise one
another up to learn new life skills and develop lifelong friendships. Glen Arden's sessions serve girls from 1st through 11th grade and are available in two, three, and four week options.
The campus is nestled among the rhododendron and evergreens in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Tuxedo, North Carolina. We are conveniently located 40 minutes from Asheville, NC, 40 minutes from Greenville, SC, three hours from Atlanta, GA.
We believe time invested at Glen Arden builds well-rounded, wholesome individuals. Glen Arden feels keenly the responsibility and opportunity of helping campers develop spiritually inspired, noble, well-lived lives.
“Glen Arden is my home away from home.”
Camp Glen Arden's purpose is multi-faceted:
We believe that girls need a place to be:
Our hope is, that as these girls grow up and beyond, the magic and memories of Camp Glen Arden will go with them—wherever they may go.

You just cannot put a price on disconnecting from the outside world for a few days and connecting fully with your family. Can't wait to come back next year. Good, clean fun at its finest!”
