Town and Country

(April 1995)

"The North Carolina mountains are a favorite destination... and these camps have inspired lots of other camps to pitch their tents in the area. Families... send their children here, knowing they'll receive a time-honored, well-rounded experience.  With...counselors predominantly drawn from adults who passed their summers here as kids, alumni remain a group bound by tight friendships."

Choosing the Right Camp                    

by Richard Kennedy and Michael Kimball

"Both camps are bedrocks of tradition, professionally run and deeply committed.  Their program, philosophy, and leadership are well founded and well tested over the years... Campers choose their own activities and learn to be responsible for themselves in a nurturing, noncompetitive atmosphere... this is a wonderfully devoted staff, most of whom have been campers here in their younger years... When it comes to real-life education, it's easy to see that these people really know what they are doing."

Paddling Schools for Kids, (April 1995)

"Any paddling program that has produced such legends and top-notch paddlers has to be doing something right. Then again, (the camp) has had a lot of time to perfect its programs. Founded in 1922 by Frank Bell, Sr., the camp has been offering everything from mountaineering and sailing to paddling, riding and mountain biking."

"Pick a Champ of a Camp", (April 1993)

"Sending your child to a summer camp? Make your choice a good one by asking the right questions first... Frank Bell of Mondamin and Green Cove says, 'Our camper-to-counselor ratio is 3.5 to 1, but you need to ask more: how does a camp choose its counselors?... We provide biographies of all staff members.  We also supply a sheet with a couple of dozen references. If you're from a town where we have other campers, we send their names.'"


Camps for Kids, (January 1996)

"These brother/sister camps each have their own riding program, including stables, rings, and trails. The horses allow for the varying degrees of rider experience. Along with riding and safety instruction, campers can take part in one to three day riding trips into nearby wilderness areas. In addition to horses, the camps offer swimming, canoeing, tennis, sailing, et cetera."
