The camp was built in 1922 on then-new Lake Summit.
Our waterfront is our most obvious asset – a 350 acre lake surrounded by mountains and often blessed with interesting winds for sailing. Mondamin is also conveniently located with respect to forests and rivers.
We own about 800 acres of woodland, shared with our girls’ camp Green Cove, and have easy access to hundreds of square miles of Pisgah National Forest and the Smoky Mountain National Park.
Much of our program, therefore, centers around water and woods, rather than traditional school-type athletics. In-camp facilities, besides the waterfront, include three tennis courts, a barn and three riding rings, a craft shop, a 60 foot climbing tower, an indoor rifle range, a gymnasium with an indoor climbing wall, and a Boat Shop in which boys learn the hands on art of building wooden canoes.
