The Camp Southwoods Way

What We Care About Most!

Real Experiences. Real Life Lessons. Real Friends and REAL FUN!

Camp Southwoods’ spirit bubbles over with wonderous adventure, good and clean fun, family joy, everyday teamwork, confidence-boosting relationships and lots of loving kindness.

Real Lessons

Every lesson, activity, program and experience is choreographed with one goal in mind; to inspire our family of campers to explore a world of possibilities they and you will cherish for ever more.

Every child who calls Camp Southwood their home away from home has our undivided attention in everything they will do here.

Real Experiences

Experiences have the power to create can-do mindsets. By safely exploring the grandness of nature, expressing their individual spirit in art and music, and commanding their bodies with athletics and games, your child will grow stronger.

When night falls and crickets start to chirp, bunkmates settle in, tidy up their space, play some cards and can just shoot the breeze about their life.

Real Life Lessons

Guided by expert coaches in more than 80 activities and programs, kids will rack up those ah-ha moments one after another, giving them a sense of accomplishment they can build on year after year.

Real Friends

With all that playing, learning, exploring and general haymaking they do together, campers create bonds with one another that are unlike any other friendship they will have in life. Kids may come to camp as strangers, but they leave as lifelong friends.

Real FUN

Goof off! Camp Out! Giggle! Sing Songs! Make Jokes! Dance!

Yes, we celebrate childhood here!

By making sure kids unplug from all the noisy distractions of tv, cell phones and computer screens, they can tap into the magic of being a child again.

Why Camp Southwoods

Intention. Every experience we create has a purpose behind it. Every program, lesson and activity fosters learning, sparks, and inspires campers to move!

We intend for your child to feel joy. We intend to foster friendships. And we intend to make a positive contribution that will help shape their future.
