NC Mountain Camps For Children

Children's Camps in The NC Mountains!

Children’s Camps are popular summer attractions in Western North Carolina.  BOYS, GIRLS, and COED camps welcome all ages. The camps are listed according to their location and are colored coded.  Children’s camps have been popular since the beginning of the century dating back to the early 1900’s with over 40 available to select from.  Some are day camps. With others you  can’t forget to pack that sleeping bag!

Outdoor adventure is the primary focus of many so you will find your child hiking, horseback riding, camping, mountain climbing, canoeing, and swimming to name just a few adventures.  Mother Nature blessed our area with some of her finest landscapes for outdoor education.  We are not recommending one camp over another, but listing them for your investigation.  If you know of a camp that is omitted, please let us know and we will add it.  Give your child an opportunity to meet and experience Mother Nature.
