Overview

 

Camp Juliette Low (CJL) is a private, non-profit summer camp for girls, managed by a dedicated Board of Trustees and experienced camp directors.

 

In the tradition of the camp’s founder, Juliette Gordon Low, who also founded the Girl Scouts, CJL has a simple goal: to provide girls with opportunities to become more competent and more confident with themselves, the outdoors, and life in general. CJL staff and campers generate a lot of fun in the process.

 

The camp videos will bring you the sights and sounds of CJL. A link to CJL’s camp videos is located in the header of our website. 

Living Arrangements

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.

 

Activities

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.

 

Natural Beauty

Camp is located in one of the most beautiful spots in the southeast: the largely-undiscovered northwest corner of Georgia. The property is about 330 acres of mountaintop, encompassing a lake, several different kinds of forest, and nearly a mile of the East Fork of the Little River.

 

CJL’s less natural facilities include a large swimming pool, a dining hall, tennis courts, a climbing wall, an ever-growing ropes course with both low and high elements, a barn and riding ring, and many unit kitchens and cooking shelters. Our “Swinging” (suspension) Bridge over the rocky basin of Little River is a favorite attraction. The original Juliette Low Lodge, built in 1922, still stands at the center of camp, a testament to the camp’s history and traditions.

 

Alumnae and Volunteers

Many CJL campers return in their 20s to be on staff or maintain involvement with the camp by participating in various alumnae functions. Alums, their families, nearby residents, and many others have given generously of their time and skills over the years to help Camp Juliette Low thrive and meet its goals.

 

Our Goals

  • To live in, enjoy and appreciate the out-of-doors.
  • To train girls in citizenship through the “give and take” of working together.
  • To help each girl gain a stronger sense of responsibility for herself and others.
  • To further introduce each girl to new skills and interests, or to further develop skills and interests so that she continually grows in the awareness of her abilities and successful experiences.
  • To make each girl a healthier, happier and more self-confident individual.
