About Camp Mohawk
Why We’re Special

There are very few places in a young woman’s life that she can just be a girl…with other girls and do, you know…girl stuff!  Camp Mohawk is a “girls only” camp by design.  Girls grow in confidence in a girls only environment!  The age that girls start questioning their looks, their smarts, their value is getting younger and younger.  Helping them develop a strong sense of self early, enables them to better handle the challenges of young womanhood.


We value all our young women…they are all different…and they are all just perfect…exactly how they are.

Camp Mohawk is a YMCA approved and  accredited camp.  Further, we  are accredited by the American Camping Association.  Being held to the highest standards ensures your daughter’s care and safety.
