Founded in 1935 – Gwynn
Valley is a summer camp for boys and girls with a farm, wilderness, and
traditional program that nurtures the child while fostering a connection
with the land and the simple joys of childhood. We introduce a variety
of programs to children in a noncompetitive and accepting environment.
The camp property is located near Brevard NC, in the Appalachian
Mountains. The property sits on 320 acres of mostly wooded
land held in a conservation easement with a small lake, large creek and
access to the French Broad River. With a working farm and 1890’s grist
mill the children are involved in maintaining, harvesting, and preparing
vegetables and field crops grown on our camp farm.
