TOP VIRGINIA SUMMER CAMP: Camp Mont Shenandoah is a Top Summer Camp located in Millboro Springs Virginia offering many fun and enriching camp programs.

CAMP LOCATION: Located in beautiful Bath County, Virginia, Camp Mont Shenandoah offers 60-acres of fields, woods with hiking trails, and waterfront access to a pristine mountain river. We are well located, just under an hour’s drive from the intersection of I-81 and I-64 in Central Virginia. For those coming from farther away, special arrangements for shuttle transportation to/from regional airports can be arranged. Our surrounding community offers a number of additional activities and amenities, including The Homestead Resort, George Washington National Forest, Douthat State Park, Garth Newel Music Center, and charming historic communities like Hot Springs and Warm Springs. Please visit our website for lots of camp photos and videos.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our traditional camp buildings range from cozy screened cabins to large lodge-style gathering places. Many of the original camp structures remain, such as the 1920s dining hall (where girls gather three times each day to eat family style, home-cooked meals) and West Lodge (where performances delight campers of every age). While we are rustic, we do have electricity and all our bathhouses offer flush toilets and hot water showers.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Founded in 1927 by Nannie West, Camp Mont Shenandoah is one of the oldest girls’ camps in Virginia. The exceptional Mont Shenandoah experience has kept families returning for generations and inspired numerous campers to return as counselors. Camp Mont Shenandoah’s mission is to create an excellent summer camp experience for girls. In a safe and caring environment, our camp provides the setting and structure each girl needs to grow -- physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.

Through cabin living, fun, challenging activities, relationships with peers and staff, and longstanding traditions, we promote life skills that instill confidence, develop a girl’s sense of self and foster independence. Campers leave Mont Shenandoah having learned the guiding principles of our five virtues: Love, Loyalty, Friendship, Sportsmanship, and Spiritual Awareness. Camp Mont Shenandoah boasts a high rate of returning program staff, almost all of whom are former campers or junior counselors. Counselors are selected based on their maturity, stability, dependability, leadership skills, ability to relate to girls of all ages, sense of humor as well as their knowledge and demonstrated skills in the activity for which they are hired to teach. The camper-to-staff ratio is five to one, assuring each girl ample individual attention

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: In 2005, Camp Mont Shenandoah started The Camp Spirit Scholarship to help campers attend camp that may not otherwise be able to due to financial constraints. The Camp Spirit Scholarship is a fund within Community Foundation for Rockbridge, Bath and Alleghany, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

OTHER CAMP INFO: If horses are your passion, you’ll be able to enjoy a comprehensive horseback riding program designed for girls of all ages and skill levels at Cabell Stable, our equestrian facility built in 2001. Our goals at Cabell Stable at Camp Mont Shenandoah are to improve riding skills, teach proper horse care and barn maintenance, learn to appreciate and value horses, and lastly (but certainly not least!) to have fun. From the moment they set foot in Cabell Stable, campers are taught to respect each horse and how to properly handle them on the ground and in the saddle. Our lessons are based on hunt seat equitation that focuses on the rider’s form. We limit our horseback riding classes to no more than five girls in the ring at a time, ensuring adequate instruction for each camper. Safety is of primary importance at Cabell Stable. When mounted, all girls must wear an approved (ATSM-SEI) protective helmet, long pants (or breeches) and boots with a heel. (We have helmets for campers to borrow if they do not have their own).

Camp Mont Shenandoah offers a six-week session, two three-week sessions, and a one week-long session, called Roots & Shoots. If you are interested in becoming a CMS girl, we encourage you to send your registration form early as available spaces tend to fill quickly. A copy of the registration form is available for download on our website.
