Lake Bryn Mawr Camp

Children and Challenge Await You


Bryn Mawr is home to approximately 365 campers (ages seven to 15) and 175 staff. All of our girls are full-season campers who attend a seven-week session.


Happy Staff - Happy Campers!

We believe that our philosophy of encouraging personal growth and responsibility helps our campers grow into confident, community-minded young women. Campers learn four core values—Loyalty, Beauty, Merit and Comradeship—that are the foundation of the Bryn Mawr philosophy. In order to accomplish the goals we set for our campers, we rely on a staff of enthusiastic, motivated and skilled women and men who love camp, enjoy working with girls and young women, and have knowledge they want to share. Our counselors are college students, educators, athletes, artists, performers and youth workers age 19 or older. They come from a variety of states, countries and fields of study, but they have at least two things in common: they love children, and they love a challenge.
