"My summers at Camp Glen Arden shaped my future by providing role models and opportunities which have opened my eyes to the world around me. That vision has encouraged me to become a productive, pro-active member of my family, my school, my community, and my world." - Camper, Winter Park, FL
"The real standout for me is the “progression system” which challenges girls to master different activities at their own pace, until they can teach it to others. Our daughter looks forward to mastering horsemanship and rock climbing in future years so that when she’s older she can teach others to ride and lead climbing expeditions!" - Amy W., Saluda, NC
