Valley Mill Camp

15101 Seneca Road

Germantown, MD



Valley Mill Camp’s 60 wooded acres and spring-fed lake provide the perfect setting for unforgettable summer adventures. Through a wide range of fun and challenging activities—kayaking, canoeing, gymnastics, horseback riding, archery and air rifle, rock climbing and more—“Valley Millers” spend their days communing with nature in the rugged outdoors, learning about self-sufficiency and resilience. Those qualities translate into self-confidence in all walks of life. Several campers have gone on to compete in kayaking and canoeing on national and Olympic teams.

Valley Mill Camp has been honored with many local awards. Most recently, it was voted Best of D.C. (Washington City Paper), Best of Montgomery County (Montgomery Magazine) and Best of Bethesda (Bethesda Magazine) in 2019. The counselors are selected for character and values that make them good role models. They care about the children and the camp, and lead activities with a spirit of fun. Activities of younger age groups are tailored to their capabilities, while older age groups have ample opportunity to excel. For our more experienced campers we have Adventure Camp, which features offsite trips for kayaking, rock climbing and other exciting events. Valley Mill emphasizes the development of group cohesiveness and persistence through outdoor challenge.

With second and third-generation campers, many children attend year after year, finding increased and deepened experiences each time. Valley Mill Camp is a place where lifelong skills are learned and lifelong friends are made!
