There are many camps across the United States with various program concentrations, but Camp Laurel stands out among these camps. Combining a family atmosphere with world-class programming and facilities, Camp Laurel is truly one of a kind. Campers receive unparalleled instruction in Athletics, Tennis, Watersports, Arts, Outdoor Adventure and Equestrian from our talented staff who join us from all over the world. Sending a child to camp is a tremendous act of faith by parents and Camp Laurel takes that responsibility very seriously by creating an environment that encourages both safety and health, and reinforces a positive self-image.
The facilities at Camp Laurel are second-to-none and consists of pristine fields and courts for all major sports, art studios for visual and performing arts, adventure courses and a 20-horse barn; all laid on the backdrop of beautiful Echo Lake — nine miles around. The program features guided choice where campers are given increasing freedom to select activities as they get older. In one day at camp, a camper can play any sport of their choosing, waterski behind one of our Mastercraft speed boats, work on their serve on one of our 15 hard-surfaced tennis courts, learn to cook global cuisine in our world-class culinary studio, explore the high ropes on our adventure course and ride one of our 20 horses and ponies…all before dinner!
While the program and facilities are impressive, what really makes Camp Laurel stand out is the family environment created by the staff. Jem and Debbie Sollinger, Laurel’s camp directors, have overseen Camp Laurel for 20+ years and know each camper and family on an individual level. The staff are hand-picked from colleges and universities and go through a rigorous application and interview process. Once hired, the staff attend a week-long orientation where they have a chance to get to know the program, their responsibilities and each child in their cabin prior to the campers’ arrival. The directors and well-trained staff ensure each and every camper is having an unforgettable experience filled with self-growth.
With many camps to choose from, Camp Laurel’s premier program, facilities, staff and environment stand out from the rest.
