Where children discover themselves among forests and friends
Nestled in the mountains of North Carolina, Eagle’s Nest Camp encourages the development of the whole child in a compassionate, encouraging community. We fill our days with activities that promote curiosity, creativity, independence and growth. As a Western NC summer camp, Eagle’s Nest provides school age children the opportunity to slow down and experience friendship and joyful living while immersing themselves in nature. In our inclusive community campers are treated with respect and kindness. They are valued for the unique people they are. At Eagle’s Nest, children find belonging, build skills, and are encouraged to grow into their best selves.
- Children can explore woods, creeks, and ponds on a 185 acre conservation easement surrounded by mountains.
- The only screens in front of children are the ones that let the mountain breezes blow through their cabin.
- Campers are served healthy meals family style and get excited about eating vegetables harvested from the garden.
- Children are taught teamwork, empathy, inclusion and compassion.
- Campers learn to be helpful members of a community by helping to set tables and wash dishes.
- Scholarships and support are available for campers with financial need.
AND WHERE CAMPERS ARE CARED FOR BY ENGAGING COUNSELORS
Eagle’s Nest counselors are passionate about bringing joy to our campers and filling their summer with meaningful fun! They are creative, skilled, thoughtful and caring. Our counselors are attentive to the physical and emotional needs of children and to keeping them healthy and well. All staff members are at least 18 years old and have had a year of college or equivalent experience.
“Eagle’s Nest has made such a big impact on my life that I cannot begin to express my gratitude in words. Camp will forever and always have a special place in my heart, I will carry the magic of the sacred place wherever I go. I’ll always be grateful that I can call Eagle’s Nest home.”
