What People Say

Each year, we get many letters and e-mails from our campers and their families. We hope you will take a moment to read about their experiences at Camp Mont Shenandoah.

“This camp provided a transformative experience for our daughter and it had a positive impact on our entire family.  I would never encourage friends to join in on something like this unless I truly believed in it 100 percent. I hope you will consider coming." Parents

"I can't tell you how much camp has given me - the best thing my mom ever did for me was to send me off to Millboro Springs.  I know that I'd be a completely different person had I not had camp to shape my life." Camper

"I can't even begin to explain how much I have learned and grown from camp.  The friends I have made from camp are my best friends in the world." Camper

"Thank you for another year of fun, friends and growth at camp.  Like all parents, we wish each year that we could bottle the Camp Mont Shenandoah spirit and bring it home with us.  After seven summers, we finally realize that we do.  The girls carry it with them wherever they go." Parent

"It's comforting to know that Camp will always be there, and will always be here, within me." Camper

"It was hard for me to leave on Sunday -- not because I was worried about my daughter, but because I wanted to go to camp again myself!  I just love the place with all its traditions that mean so much to me." Former camper and parent

"Thanks for the superb camp experience.  Our daughter has been back home only two days, but it is already clear that these past six weeks at Camp Mont Shenandoah will have a lasting positive effect." Parent

"Camp means the world to me, and I am so thankful to have spent my past summers there."  Camper

“I really couldn't begin to express how much it means to me, how much camp has taught me and the ways I've grown in my summers there.”  Camper

"Watching my campers mature, form friendships and grow to love Shenandoah has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.  It is because of you that so many girls, including myself, find a place where they can escape for six short weeks and find happiness unlike anywhere else in the world." Counselor

“Every day I find myself singing a camp song, and I can't wait to taste the food again!" Camper

“I think C.M.S. is the best camp in the world! I had the best time of my life there!” Camper

 “The benefits of camp extend far beyond the confines of Millboro Springs. I thank you and your excellent staff for all that you do.  It's way more than just fun activities and delicious meals and a great riding facility - it makes a profound difference in our lives.”  Parent
