Founded in 1922 as a character development and leadership training program, Geneva Glen Camp is a private, non-profit organization and we are proud of its more than nine decades of successful seasons. Geneva Glen is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors, which is comprised of camper parents, former staff, alumni and community leaders. Since Geneva Glen’s inception, only three pairs of directors have been employed - through this rich tradition, Geneva Glen welcomes hundreds of second-generation through fifth-generation campers each summer. Campers and leaders of many ethnic, racial and economic backgrounds return year after year, and such continuity produces youth committed to high values and leadership in their communities.
Geneva Glen Camp continually strives to provide a setting that emphasizes the development of sound values and growth of character for each child attending the camp. In this setting is woven an exciting educational and comprehensive leadership training program for children ages 6-16, and camp programs provide the opportunity to live the values of mutual respect, honesty and acceptance of others. Our programs also teach individual responsibility, understanding of cultural differences, courage to live at one’s best and stewardship for the natural environment. The vision of Geneva Glen’s founders is as bright and clear as it was in 1922, and that vision continues to guide the directors, staff and campers on their journeys through Geneva Glen summers.
