North Carolina Summer Camps for Girls

Our Favorite North Carolina Girls Summer Camps

Here is a list of North Carolina summer camps for girls, all located in the mountains of North Carolina. There is a brief description here for each, and all have websites with detailed information you can access. The best way to select a camp is to visit the facility, meet the directors, and talk to other parents. It is best to tour each camp during the summer while it is in session to really get a feel of whether they will be a good match.  Each camp has it’s own special attributes and therefore no one camp is the “best” for everyone. By paying attention to the needs of your daughter and trying to match her with a camp that will meet those needs is of prime importance. By researching the camps, involving your daughter every step of the way, and making an educated decision, you may well be able to find the camp that is the “best” for your daughter.
