Registration for Summer 2022 has begun!

We are excited to gear up for another amazing summer here at Gwynn Valley!  We are so grateful that we were able to run a successful summer program in 2021.  Our campers and staff enjoyed our luscious green valley here in the mountains, made new friends, and had an unplugged respite from their lives back home.  After the last year and a half, we all needed to play outdoors, get away from technology, and most importantly, be in community! 

Although how we organized program was different this year due to COVID protocols and staying in smaller groups, we had loads of fun in so many activities. Campers developed new skills and tried things they had never done before. Our new flow track was a big hit and enjoyed by many campers who tested their biking skills riding the track! Check out the blog about it: https://gwynnvalley.com/rolling-on-the-flow-track/.  We believe in challenge by choice at Gwynn Valley and as Miss Mary Gwynn, the founder of camp, always said, do something difficult every day. This helps campers develop resilience, encourages them to try new activities, and to try again when they don’t succeed the first time. Campers cranked out lots of pottery, candles, and iron crafts, they camped out and enjoyed s’mores with friends, and most importantly, they enjoyed the simple joys of childhood.

While the summer weather still hangs on for us here in Western North Carolina, we are busy enrolling campers for next year and excited about planning for 2022. Registration opened for our returning campers on Monday, August 23.  They receive priority for a couple of weeks before we open registration for new families.  New campers can apply beginning September 10th.  Be sure to check availability on the Dates & Rates page as sessions fill quickly!  For more details about registration, visit the Registration page. If you have any questions about camp or would like to come visit for a tour, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.  

We are excited for Summer 2022!
