    Overview

    Located in the Mountains of Western North Carolina for 101 years, we emphasize outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, canoeing, 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. 

    At Camp Mondamin, our program is non-competitive, which encourages experimentation, and non-regimented, which fosters self-direction. Our strengths lie in the quality of our staff and the depth of our program. We value diversity, attracting campers from all 50 states and even a few foreign countries.

    Early June Camp

    Early June Camp is a fun introductory session. We will do the activities around camp and take one overnight camping trip. It will be small (about 50 boys), and will be a good way for children not quite ready for three weeks to get a taste of camp life. For 6 to 10 year olds (through at least the first grade).

    June Camp

    In a 3 week session, we can do a variety of activities, make some new acquaintances, and have lots of fun. Our June Camp program is oriented more towards “fun” activities, utilizing skills which are attainable in three weeks. We can practice independence, work on self-reliance, and build such skills and friendships as time permits. The short period is an excellent choice for those wanting a taste of camp fun, with time left over for a family trip or other substantial summer activity. For ages 7 to 13.

    Main Camp

    The five week period is for those who want a big bite of skills, pioneer experiences, and stimulating contacts. A camper who has coordination and industry can learn to take his horse over a fence, to guide his canoe down a rapid, to handle himself in a variety of sometimes challenging situations. Wilderness trips as long as six days are possible. Even more importantly, there is a tremendous opportunity for forging durable friendships among peers and adults which can , and often do, last a lifetime. Main Camp is the session of choice for those campers wishing the greatest exposure and opportunity for building friends and skills, and taking wilderness trips. For ages 8 to 17.

    August Camp

    August Camp is a great introductory session. We will do all of the activities around camp and get a taste of overnight camping. It is a good way for children not quite ready for a longer session to get a taste of camp life. For ages 6 to 11 (through at least the first grade).
