Boys Camp Summer Program

Valley Mill Camp has been serving families in the Washington D.C. area since 1956, combining closeness to home with the atmosphere of an away camp. Located on more than sixty acres of deep woods, and surrounding a two acre spring fed lake, Valley Mill provides ample space for a vigorous camp program for both boys and girls. The counselors are selected for character and values that make them good role models. Our counselors care about the children and the camp, and they lead the activities with a spirit of fun. On your child's first day of camp, he or she will be placed into an age group under the direction of a group counselor. With this, your child will attend activities, assemblies and special events. These events include rock climbing, kayaking, and group trips off property. Activities of younger age groups are paced to their capacities, while older age groups have ample opportunity to excel. Valley Mill emphasizes the development of group cohesiveness and of resilience through outdoor challenge. Many children attend Valley Mill year after year, finding increased and deepened experiences each time.
