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 Young People in Kindergarten through 11th Grade
Eagle’s Nest Camp encourages young people 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.

I find myself working on a Parent Questionnaire for Maja’s school to help her college counselor write her recommendations. One question is: “Explain life experiences that have been transforming for your daughter.” Simply put, Eagle’s Nest Camp (for both my girls) and OA (for Maja) came to mind first. I’m so proud of the young women they have become and ENC has been and continues to be an important part of that.”
