  • Another beautiful part of our location is that there is not a shortage of girls’ summer camps in the area. Many of the girls’ camps have similar dates as ours. Their proximity ranges from 15 to 45 minutes away!

“High Rocks knows boys. They know young men who thrive on adventure and are looking to climb on large open rock faces or canoe down a whitewater river. They know young men who are quieter and are looking for a space in a pottery room to mold and shape clay and talk about the world with a mentor counselor who loves kids.”
