With the abundance of choice you face when choosing a summer program, this is the key question. Why choose Camp Twin Creeks over another summer camp or a program that keeps your child closer to home? Also consider the fact that even though your child might be 9 or 10 years old right now, you are hopefully choosing a camp for the adolescent version of your child. Camp should be a summer home for years to come, a place to return to, a place to grow, a place to relax and be themselves especially as life gets more complicated.
This is our goal and we love hearing this from our current camp families with older children at camp…
“I feel TC is totally unique – I love the diversity of backgrounds it draws from. I love how non-competitive it is – how it gives kids exposure to a huge range of activities but is not breathing down their necks to be the best or the first at any of them (a huge and healthy counterweight to some of the less appealing aspects of DC/beltway culture). I love that it is allergy friendly and attentive to health and mental health – that is hugely comforting for a parent. And we’ve basically just loved the experience 100%!” – Anne
“As the parent of a high schooler, I cannot tell you how important my son’s time at camp was for him. He truly got to unplug and unwind after the rigors of the school year, during which it seems every moment was scheduled. With the stress of high school these days, it’s incredibly important to find outlets for our kids to reconnect with old friends, make new ones, spend time with nature, and just have FUN!” – Kim
“I have an 8th grade daughter who is 13 years old. This year was her 5th year at camp. She has struggled for a full year with bullying at school and is tearful on an almost daily basis. Camp TC is the one place she feels loved, respected, and supported. I only wish we could develop this kind of environment in the school system. Luckily, she is in a group chat with her camp friends throughout the year and is able to continue to feel supported, which has made this school year a little easier on her.” – Leah
Camp is located within the stunning Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia and the Monongahela National Forest, less than 4 hours from the metropolitan Washington DC area. We are near the historical Homestead and Greenbrier Resorts as well as the renowned Snowshoe Ski mountain.
Sitting at 2300 feet above sea level, campers enjoy cool summer temperatures with chilly mornings and evenings as well as low humidity. This all makes for ideal camp conditions! Check out our google map location here.
