Summer at McGehee

McGehee camp for girls and boys aims to make sure every camper has the best summer ever!  Summer is a time for fun and adventure, and our dedicated staff of McGehee faculty work tirelessly to create and promote an environment where campers have fun, make new friends, and try new things. We pride ourselves on a low camper-counselor ratio, allowing us to customize each camper's experience so that they can maximize their summer fun! Weekly sessions include field trips, visiting professionals and special events.

Sign up for one weekly session or all eight for flexible summer planning!
