An all girls’ camp provides an atmosphere in which the focus of every camper is on her individual growth, whether it be in sports, the arts, or personal relationships.
Camp Pinecliffe is a place where girls build new skills, while improving on the ones they already have, face new challenges, learn to be independent and the feeling of accomplishment that it brings, as well as create wonderful friendships that last a lifetime. But, most importantly, it’s about being in an all girls environment, where they feel comfortable and can excel.
An all girls’ camp provides an atmosphere in which the focus of every camper is on her individual growth, whether it be in sports, the arts, or personal relationships. We believe that without the presence of boys, our girls are able to focus more on themselves and their interpersonal relationships, and less on the competition adolescent girls often feel in a coed environment.
I remember going to Pinecliffe for the first time as a nine year old, not completely confident in who I was and thinking that camp was just a place to go for 7 weeks in the summer. As I began to form friendships and find a love for new activities like waterskiing, hiking and silver I realized that my original perception of Pinecliffe was completely wrong.
Pinecliffe became my second home. From the sticky buns every Sunday, running a mile in the morning or laughing hysterically during rest hour my memories are endless! Pinecliffe has taught me the value of a sisterhood and a family.
Our oldest campers will always tell us, as first year campers, they never expected their bunkmates to become their sisters. We believe that our all-girls atmosphere allows this feeling of sisterhood to flourish.
