What we do is sophisticated.
How we do it is very simple.
It hasn’t changed in over 90 years …

Since 1921 Camp Fernwood has remained a place of tradition, commitment and warm idealistic spirit. The Fernwood philosophy is dedicated to the growth of character and nurturing traits such as tolerance, unselfishness, and an appreciation of a simpler life in the out-of-doors.

Fernwood is a full season (7 week) experience, providing girls with enough time to experience new challenges, develop activity skills and independence, establish enduring friendships, and feel at home within the safe and beautiful surroundings of camp.

Camp Fernwood helps to create the foundations for a lifetime of loyalty, integrity, and respect for self and others.
