When one chooses an investment in a child’s future, what could be better than Camp Glen Arden?

 

Time at Glen Arden is total involvement in a warm  and caring community where an organized, uplifting environment is the way of life.

 

Camp is a happy time of experiences shared with good friends. The opportunity to develop new skills and true love for the backwoods is a daily process.  Spending a summer in the mountains, with new and old friends, builds independence and friendships and results in a well-rounded, wholesome individual.  This is what we hope for all our campers, and we strive to give them the guidance necessary to achieve these goals.

 

Our parents play a very important role in this development before, during, and after camp.   Complete support is necessary for your daughter's success.  The independence and self-reliance that she will gain while at Glen Arden will be remarkable.

 

It begins with your willingness to allow your daughter to be immersed in a culture that encourages trying new things, your willingness to allow her to make decisions on her own guided by inspiring young women who act as instructors and counselors, your willingness to allow her to celebrate her accomplishments and learn that failure is only the beginning of the next challenge.

 

During her time at Glen Arden, you will support her growth through a letter or an email delivered to her during rest hour referencing one of the many exciting photos that you viewed through the camp's on-line photo gallery.  News from home will allow her to know that you are thinking of her and will encourage her to continue to experience all that Glen Arden has to offer without disturbing her experience.

 

When she arrives home from camp, you will recognize an increase in confidence, an assertiveness that that drives initiative, and an independence that promotes responsible decision making.  New skills and discovered talents gained while at camp will create a path for future development at home and continued growth from learned life skills at camp.
