About Camp Henry
Camp Henry is a safe, fun, and spiritually uplifting program set in one of the most beautiful and magical settings in Western North Carolina. A Licensed Medical Professional is present to meet the medical needs of campers each week. Also Episcopal Clergy from across the region design and lead the program and prayers and serve as spiritual directors to both campers and staff.
Campers participate in creative, engaging, and diverse programs based on scripture, liturgy, environmental education, and conservation designed by clergy and staff. Our counselors provide opportunities for the campers to have fun and learn through traditional and nontraditional sports and games, boating, fishing, sailing, hiking, arts/crafts, singing, storytelling, worship, and much more. Morning and evening prayer, Holy Eucharist, and a spiritual formation program are essential elements to the Camp Henry experience. This is a great place to have fun, make friends, and grow in one’s faith and as a person.
Our regular camp sessions accept children from kindergarten age through high school (Grade completed by June of the current school year).
LAMP (Leadership. Adventure. And Mission Program): Formerly the CIT program, our new LAMP initiative will combine the leadership training aspects of our CIT program, adventure elements of the Camp Henry Outdoor School program, and a local mission based experience. This is in an incredible opportunity for 10th and 11th graders to learn, grow, and serve.
Family Camp (for ALL AGES!) For many years, I have been relaying stories of the fun and love of CH to my family, and it occurred to me, the only thing that could make the experience of laughing, playing and sharing in God's love better was to do it with my family! Enjoy a half-week of relaxation and fun, while our staff takes care of the rest. Like a family vacation, but you don't have do any of the work! Two sessions are available to accommodate work schedules. This is also a great opportunity for your young people and you to check out Camp Henry before they come by themselves.
Mini-camp (Grades 2-3) A great way to introduce younger children to overnight camp! Check-in time is Wednesday from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m., and pick-up is Saturday at 10 a.m.
