Why Arcadia?

Teaching 21 century skills since the 20 century!

Camp Arcadia has been operated by the same family for four generations. Since 1916, Arcadia has been fortifying young girls and women 7 to 17 years old with life skills that will serve them well into adulthood. Camp builds self-confidence, friendships that last a lifetime, and the self-assurance to help girls understand who they are and how they fit into the world. 


Our group living experience combined with an extensive activity program provide opportunities to expand individual interests and allow for personal growth. We invite you to experience Arcadia.

Camp 2021





  Make the world a better  

  place because you've been in it  

Every year I go to camp and I feel free.

I don’t worry about how I look and what others think of me.  I can be myself.  I can be expressive in ways that I could not anywhere else.  Camp is my second home.  When I leave Arcadia a part of me stays there, and when I come back I am whole again.  I love going to camp as I do not think I would complete without it.  The people I have to gotten to know there are life-long friends. They are irreplaceable.”

First generation, 14 year old current camper
