Camp Juliette Low (CJL) is a private, non-profit summer camp for girls ages 7 to 17, managed by a dedicated Board of Trustees and experienced camp directors.
In the tradition of the camp’s founder, Juliette Gordon Low, who also founded the Girl Scouts, CJL has a simple goal: to provide girls with opportunities to become more competent and more confident with themselves, the outdoors, and life in general. CJL staff and campers generate a lot of fun in the process.
The camp video will bring you the sights and sounds of CJL. A link to CJL’s main camp video is located on the right sidebar —> of our website. In addition, you may contact the camp office to request copy of the camp DVD, which includes the main video as well as three short videos about CJL’s history, Parent-Daughter Weekend, and our CIT program.
CJL is all about the outdoors. Our campers live in four-person platform tents grouped by age into units of about 28 girls. Four staff members live in their own tent in the center of each unit. Each unit has its own shower and toilet facility, as well as a sheltered fire area and a “unit kitchen” for cook-outs. The Facilities page will give you more information about the tents and other buildings around camp.
Campers may choose to attend one-week or two-week sessions during the summer. Experienced campers are welcome to combine several sessions and stay with us a while! For more information about what we do during one-week and two-week sessions, go to the Summer Sessions page. For summer camp dates and fees, click HERE.
The activities CJL offers focus on outdoor living skills and recreation: canoeing, archery, horseback riding, swimming, sailing, climbing wall, ropes course, crafts, tennis, and many others. See A Day in the Life for a glimpse of what goes on during a typical day at CJL.
We offer a special Parent-Daughter Weekend in the spring during which the highlights of a summer session are compressed into two days. This is a good way for young campers or uncertain parents to try out CJL.
Camp is located in one of the most beautiful spots in the southeast: the largely-undiscovered northwest corner of Georgia. The property is about 330 acres of mountaintop, encompassing a lake, several different kinds of forest, and nearly a mile of the middle fork of the Little River.
CJL’s less natural facilities include a large swimming pool, a dining hall, tennis courts, a climbing wall, an ever-growing ropes course with both low and high elements, and many unit kitchens and cooking shelters. Our “Swinging” (suspension) Bridge over the rocky basin of Little River is a favorite attraction.
The original Juliette Low Lodge, built in 1922, still stands at the center of camp, a testament to the camp’s history and traditions.
Many CJL campers return in their 20s to be on staff or maintain involvement with the camp by participating in various alumnae functions. Alums, their families, nearby residents, and many others have given generously of their time and skills over the years to help Camp Juliette Low thrive and meet its goals.
