We will not be offering tours during the summer in 2021. We are happy to give tours starting August 9, 2021! Please give us a call: 828-885-2900
Please call ahead to schedule a tour and we are happy to show you around camp. Tours usually average about an hour, but we can lengthen or shorten that depending on what you’d like to see and answer any questions you may have.
Visiting Camp Before Attendance
If your child has never been to Gwynn Valley, a visit prior to attendance can be helpful in his/her adjustment to camp. Some apprehensions can be dispelled by seeing first-hand what the cabins, dining room, showers, and bathrooms look like. On Opening Day, your child will be coming back to a more familiar place. You are welcome to visit anytime, just Schedule a Tour.
Tour camp in the summer
The best times to tour in the summer are between 10:15 am and 12:15 pm, or in the afternoon between 3:30 pm and 5:45 pm. These times are when you can see campers in action while in program areas. We typically do not give tours on Opening and Closing Days.
Tour camp in the off-season
If you can’t make it on a weekday, we are happy to arrange a tour on the weekend. Just call ahead to make sure someone is available.
Each year we typically hold an open house for new campers and their families. Due to COVID, we will not be hosting this event as it is a large group. We are happy to give individual tours to all campers and families before the start of camp. Please call our office (828-885-2900) to arrange a date and time when you would like to schedule a tour. Our office hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM through 5:00 PM. We can’t wait to hear from you!
