Camp Moss Hollow

Camp Moss Hollow proudly celebrates over 50 years of service to over 30,000 kids and their families from our greater Washington region.  Located in the foothills of the Shenandoah Valley, Camp Moss Hollow provides children ages 7-15 a reprieve from the city and a chance to build individual and interpersonal skills, develop new perspectives, and improve self-confidence and self-efficacy through recreational and educational programming.

 

Send a Kid to Camp Campaign

Contributions to the Send a Kid to Camp campaign directly benefit families that would not otherwise be able to afford to provide their children with the opportunity to attend camp. And, Camp Moss Hollow is more than just a winter and summer camp, it is a youth development program designed to enhance educational achievement, expand horizons and increase self-worth and self-esteem for at-risk youth. Every summer, over 800 foster care, low-income, homeless, adopted, and other 7-14 year old’s are afforded the opportunity to spend a week at camp, because of the donations made to the campaign. The positive environment and respite this program provides is unparalleled and has a lasting impact on the choices campers make throughout the rest of their lives.

SUMMER CAMP

SUMMER CAMP INFO

Family Matters offers fun-filled, camping experiences for both boys and girls at Camp Moss Hollow.  Children are grouped into four residential villages based on age and gender.  Many of the activities center on village life to provide smaller, social groupings and more individualized attention.  Campers are scheduled in activities throughout the day supervised by their college age counselors or program specialists.  All participants come together for three nutritious meals a day served family style in our spacious dinning hall.
