CJL is all about the outdoors. Our campers live in four-person platform tents grouped by age into units of about 28 girls. Four staff members live in their own tent in the center of each unit. Each unit has its own shower and toilet facility, as well as a sheltered fire area and a “unit kitchen” for cook-outs. The Facilities page will give you more information about the tents and other buildings around camp.
Campers may choose to attend one-week or two-week sessions during the summer. Experienced campers are welcome to combine several sessions and stay with us a while! For more information about what we do during one-week and two-week sessions, go to the Summer Sessions page. Click here for our summer dates and fees.
The activities CJL offers focus on outdoor living skills and recreation: canoeing, archery, horseback riding, swimming, sailing, climbing wall, ropes course, crafts, tennis, and many others. See A Day in the Life for a glimpse of what goes on during a typical day at CJL.
We offer a special Parent-Daughter Weekend in the spring during which the highlights of a summer session are compressed into two days. This is a good way for young campers or uncertain parents to try out CJL.
