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 CAMP EXPERIENCE:

“I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you what a wonderful experience camp was for our whole family.  Of course, George knows and loves camp but for Kathryn and I it was new.  Each loved it and were able to make it our own.  Kathryn gained such confidence in just a week. She sang loudly at church on Sunday which is brand new for her thanks to her table family and counselors.  William had a blast and continues to talk about various activities and staff. It was a great experience for all and such a gift for me to get to see it through their eyes.”
