Camp Merrie-Woode

Welcome to Camp Merrie-Woode! Our extraordinary natural setting has inspired thousands of girls and young women since 1919. In this friendly, non-competitive community of simplified living, each individual is valued for who she is and who she will become.

On this site, you can explore all of the wonderful camp programs we offer, learn about our history, choose a session, and so much more. And if you are interested in spending the summer of a lifetime as a counselor at Camp Merrie-Woode, let us hear from you!
