Camp Mondamin is a traditional, but unique summer program for boys age 6 to 17. Located in the Mountains of Western North Carolina, they emphasize outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, mountain biking, rock climbing, and horseback riding.
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.
The five week period at Camp Mondamin (Main Camp) 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. Six-day trips and longer are possible. The "three-way" trip encourages breadth of interest, and requires a high level of skill in riding, canoeing, and mountaineering. 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.
