    Overview

    Camp Green Cove is a traditional, but unique summer program for girls age 6 to 17. Located in Western North Carolina, we emphasize outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, sailing, mountain biking, rock climbing, and horseback riding. We believe in fun, adventure, safety, and great instruction. Our program is non-competitive, which encourages experimentation, and non-regimented, which fosters self-direction. We value diversity, attracting campers from all 50 states and abroad.

    Our goal is to build self-esteem while teaching community living skills, respect for the environment, and a love for the outdoors. We work hard on cooperation, and don’t spend much time on competition, so there aren’t any cups or ribbons or medals. We believe effort and reward are related, and the reward is sweeter when it’s earned…

    There are always activities for both the beginner and the advanced camper, so everyone progresses at their own pace. Some activities are scheduled a week in advance, some on the spur of the moment, but each camper has a lot of choice in what she does… Our program is structured, but not regimented.
