During a three-day weekend, adults engage in camp activities such as canoeing, hiking, film screenings, and go-kart riding. A nighttime coed softball game, pool party, and dance parties to beats spun by a live DJ complement daytime activities. Campers also gather around late-night campfires to make s’mores and tell their scariest morning-commute stories. Six buffet-style meals prepared by professional chefs sate all sizes of appetite, and goodie bags holding T-shirts and surprise items serve as reminders of the weekend. All campers will stay in the cabins, but for an additional $50, they can upgrade to air-conditioned private rooms and bathrooms. Camps run from Friday–Sunday and are available June 1–3 and September 21–23.<p>
Timber Ridge Camp & Resort
It was 1955 when Fred and Evelyn Greenberg finally realized their dream of founding an outdoor camp for children, choosing the sweeping vistas of the Shenandoah Mountains as its home. They started with three camps, gradually combining them into one—Timber Ridge Camp & Resort. Today, they maintain a staff of directors, activity specialists, and counselors brought from university outdoors programs across the country to supervise children through the camp’s 45 onsite activities and programs.
Camp staff leaves coed attendees ages 6–16 free to choose their own activities. Campers team up in land sports such as beach volleyball, soccer, and basketball on hardwood courts or rehearse for inclusive theatrical productions and highflying trapeze acts to earn roles as Batman’s sidekick. They also take on nature itself with water-based excursions ranging from canoeing and tubing to waterskiing on the Shenandoah River or cavort under the watchful eye of Red Cross–certified lifeguards at the outdoor pool. On other adventures, they study animals at the nature center and petting zoo or arm-wrestle gravity into submission on a high-ropes course with a 40-foot climbing tower and 150-foot zipline. Staffers keep campers fueled for daily physical activity with regular themed dinner nights, each with kosher alternatives.
