The Program

Belle Meade Camp is located on our 138-acre farm with streams, meadows, forests, mountains, and a pond. In addition to the beautiful natural setting, camp facilities include a swimming pool, a pond, and a pavilion. A variety of activities both instructional and exploratory are part of each day:
  • swimming instruction
  • recreational swimming
  • excursions / nature hikes
  • pond activities, canoeing
  • archery
  • informal sports
  • writing, drawing, games
  • arts and crafts
  • stories and singing

Camp Philosophy and Staff

The purpose of Belle Meade Camp is to provide a supportive, nurturing environment with a balance between instruction and discovery/exploration. At Belle Meade, we believe that everyone learns and develops best in an atmosphere that respects each individual and encourages initiative, curiosity, and imagination. Respect for oneself, for others, and for the beautiful natural environment is a basic tenet of our camp. We encourage each individual to assume responsibility for his/her learning and behavior.
