Camp Juliette Low offers one-week and two-week sessions throughout the summer. It is suggested that very young, first-time campers attend a one-week session. Older girls and experienced campers are encouraged to stay for two weeks or to combine sessions and stay even longer.
Once a camper is familiar with camp, she is usually ready for more excitement! Two-week campers:
Campers who sign up for multiple sessions are invited, free of charge, to stay at camp for “changeover” — the day between each session. Changeover is fully supervised by counselors, and allows campers time to relax, do laundry, and take a trip into town to shop for personal items. In the afternoon, campers and counselors plan a fun excursion, like going out for dinner and a movie. Parents are also welcome to pick up their campers in between sessions to relax and do laundry at home.
For a good idea of what typical one-week and two-week sessions entail, check out A Day In The Life of a CJL Camper. At CJL, girls live, work, and play outdoors to build a better understanding of their natural surroundings, acquire confidence in themselves, become comfortable working in groups to solve every-day problems, and, of course, have a great time.
Special three-week CIT (counselor-in-training) sessions are held for girls who’ve completed 10th and 11th grades. The goal of these sessions is to teach older girls the skills they’ll need to be counselors at CJL. Juliette Gordon Low established this camp as a training facility for her Girl Scout leaders. Though CJL is no longer affiliated with the Girl Scouts, the leadership training tradition lives on in the CIT program. Click HERE to learn more about our CIT program.
The first weekend in May is Parent-Daughter Weekend, during which daughters and a parent (dads are welcome) come up to camp, sleep in a tent, and try out some of CJL’s activities. This is a perfect chance for young campers and their parents to get to know Camp Juliette Low. Click HERE to learn more about Parent-Daughter Weekend.
