Valley Mill Camp
“Valley Mill campers can achieve anything they set their minds to,” says Evelyn McEwan, whose parents Bob and May founded the camp in 1956. Combining closeness to home with the atmosphere of an away camp, Valley Mill provides ample space for a vigorous camp program for boys and girls. Through kayaking, canoeing, gymnastics, horseback riding, archery and air rifle and more, “Valley Millers” spend their days outdoors, learning about self-sufficiency and resilience.
Those qualities translate into self-confidence in all walks of life. Some Valley Millers have gone on to compete in kayaking and canoeing on national and Olympic teams. Many children attend Valley Mill year after year, finding deepened experiences each time. Counselors are chosen for their character and values, and are excellent role models for campers.
