Do you have a passion for summer camp, high adventure, crafts, outdoor skills, STEM or empowering girls, teens and young women then Camp Meriwether is for you! We are a true camp complete with a lake for canoe, kayak; a challenge course; a large equestrian program; miles of hiking trails; arts and crafts; large swimming pool and climate controlled cabins and dining hall.
- During the summer we operate a premiere residential program for 2nd-12th graders. We are looking for dynamic young women to provide a top rate camping experience for your girls. All staff will live and work on camp starting the end of May until the beginning of August. In the evenings we will spend time with our friends around the campfire, or at a pool party, or show off our talents at the amphitheater.
