Centered on Girls Since 1922

A girl becomes the best version of herself at Camp Alleghany. She’ll always remember her summer on the banks of the glorious Greenbrier River in the lush mountains of West Virginia.

Over a century of fun and friends, we’ve prepared campers for purposeful lives as independent, thoughtful, and self-confident young women.

Praise for Camp Alleghany

  • I dedicated weeks to searching for the best summer camp for my daughter — and I have the spreadsheet to prove it. The requirements were many including being accredited, free from technology, gossip, and boys. Alleghany checked every box, but it was our visit to family camp that sealed the deal. Upon our arrival it became immediately clear that Alleghany is a family, and a beloved one at that.

  • This will be our 8th summer with Camp Alleghany. What started as a gentle yet adventurous “nudge” for our oldest daughter; to encourage more independence, unplug and get outside has turned into so much more for our entire family.  We have been impressed by so many of the staff, CA alumnae and CA families...We knew right away our daughters were in good hands.

  • At a time when girls can be trying out different behaviors and friend groups in middle and high school, returning to Alleghany each summer provides an annual opportunity to re-connect with core values of kindness, integrity and good citizenship. Her grounding in her ‘Ghany Girl identity helps reinforce these values in our daughter all year long.
