Historic Camp Glen Arden Finds New Owners

Record #:
The only girls’ camp listed on the National Register of Historic Places leaves a multilayered legacy. Girls participating in its three and four week programs experience traditional activities like archery along with coppersmithing. Attesting summer camps’ influence was the number of children attending Western North Carolina camps in 2010, 53,000 in the cited economic impact study. Another benefit was represented in that year’s revenue, noted in the study as 365 million statewide and 33 million locally for camps in four WNC counties.
