Camp life at Fernwood is about growth and exploration. No two days are the same. We are a traditional girls’ camp where campers wear a simple green and white uniform, and we sing all the time! Our activity program is a structured pairing of a small core of required activities, combined with a balance of “elective” activities.
In the spring of each year, with the input of parents, and guidance of camp directors, campers select a wide variety of activities to take part in during the summer. Modifications to these initial choices can be made during the summer.
Different than assigning each camper a set schedule of activities geared for children of a certain age, this custom tailoring of each child’s activity choices results in a schedule that is unique to her, reflecting her own individual interests and goals, and ensuring that she is eager and happy in all of her activities.
We are a friendly and open community. With 230 campers and 160 staff members, we are small enough that everyone knows everyone else’s name. When a camper has a problem, our caring and professional staff members are available to help her through her difficulty, what ever it might be.
There is only so much a video or webpage can tell you about our special community. We invite you to visit and see for yourself the true magic of Fernwood!
