Camp Life

General Information | Daily Activities | Tripping & Events | A Typical Day

Camp life at Fernwood is about growth and exploration. No two days are the same. We are a traditional girls’ camp in that our program is structured, everyone wears a simple uniform, and we sing all the time! The structure is very comfortable for our girls because throughout camp, the activity selection is “elective”, meaning that each child’s schedule is unique and reflects her individual interests and goals.   Prior to arriving at camp, and with the guidance of parents, campers select a wide variety of activities to take part in during the summer.

We are a friendly and open community.  With 225 campers and 140 staff members, we are small enough that everyone knows everyone else’s name.  When a camper has a problem, our caring and professional staff members are available to help her through her difficulty, what ever it might be.

There is only so much a video or webpage can tell you about our special community. We invite you to visit and see for yourself the true magic of Fernwood!
