Eagle’s Nest Camp is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina, surrounded by lush rhododendron and towering pines. Our 180-acre river valley campus serves as home to a diverse community of campers from across the country and the world. Since 1927, Eagle’s Nest campers have been inspired by mountain views, cooled by midday creek hikes, and ushered to sleep by a symphony of cicadas.

Summer Camp for Boys and Girls in Kindergarten through 11th Grade

Eagle’s Nest Camp encourages boys and girls to live and grow simply, rooted by intentional experiences and connection to community. We place emphasis on developing the whole child in a compassionate, encouraging environment filled with activities that promote self-expression, personal growth, skill building and fun. Eagle’s Nest provides campers the opportunity to slow down and reconnect with the core values of nature, friendship, and joyful living. At Eagle’s Nest children form meaningful friendships and learn what it means to truly belong.

Eagle’s Nest provides a tight-knit, nurturing community of equality where campers are treated with respect, kindness and compassion. They are valued for the unique people they are and return to Eagle’s Nest year after year because Camp is a second home for them. We are open to and embrace all spiritual practices and celebrate the differences that make our world so rich.

Eagle’s Nest Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), and our activities meet or exceed the ACA’s safety precautions and standards.

The way of creating many different groups: the cabin, the dinner and the tribe, is so smart in order to ensure that all children meet and are included, regardless of age or friends from earlier camps. And the system of winning ice cream after having kept the cabin clean for several days, takes away all the niggling…But most of all we understand how much love you embraced William and every child with. Thank you so much! We are sure that you will meet Wille again, next time applying for some of the positions as one of the young leaders at the camp…”
