Mont Shenandoah is Camp Mont Shenandoah during the summer months. Started in 1927 by Nannie West of Richmond, the camp was purchased by Mary Lib Cabell Groff, Hazel Cox and Clarence Meadows in 1949. The camp is currently under the third generation of family ownership. Ann Warner, the director and an owner, assumed management of the camp in 1996 when she left a career in social work in Northern Virginia.

We host over three hundred girls each summer for one, three and six week sessions. They participate in many activities, including swimming, archery, horseback riding, tennis, basketball, arts and crafts, drama, music and additional sports.  You are required to have a lifeguard on duty whenever someone is in the water.

With a camper return rate greater than 80% and having recently been voted #1 in the Commonwealth by readers of Virginia Living Magazine, we are Virginia’s oldest and best-loved, private summer camp that has been in continuous operation.
