Traditional Summer Camp

Camp Whitsett will be closed for the summer of 2024.

Due to the absence of our beloved lake and our commitment to maintaining the highest standards for our campers, we have made the difficult decision to take a hiatus this season. But fear not! We’re not sitting idly by. Our team will be hard at work on various projects throughout the year to enhance and improve our facilities in anticipation of our reopening in 2025!

We know this news may come as a disappointment, but we believe it’s essential to prioritize the quality of our camp experience.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support. Let’s make 2025 our best summer yet! 🏕️
