Camp Tours

Camp will be open for tours the first two weekends in September!

We are excited to meet prospective campers and their parents (or reconnect with you!) and show you around Camp.

This is a fun opportunity to experience the beauty of Camp and learn more about what life is like as a DeSoto camper.

Due to the current state of the pandemic, uncertainty around fall schedules, and the difficulty of gathering safely, we will not be hosting Camp DeSoto parties in your hometowns this fall. We are so sad to not have this opportunity to meet you and answer your questions!

Even though we will not be coming to you this fall, we do think that we can safely welcome small groups to Camp for a socially-distanced tour and time to explore.

Taking a tour is a great way to introduce your daughter to the idea of Camp - Camp for a month is a big concept, and it often helps to have a place she can visualize.

Where do you take a shower?
What are the Worship Rocks?
Where do I mail my letters?

These are the kinds of things it helps for girls to see and think about ahead of time! We would love to answer these questions in person, when we can show her her instead of just tell her about it.

As a parent, you’d probably like to get to know us and ask your own questions as well.

Fall Tour Weekends

September 5-6
September 12-13

Camp tours typically last about 90 minutes (unless you’d like to keep it shorter, which we can certainly do.)

We will have a few key areas of Camp set up like they would be in a typical summer - a bed made in a cabin, a Dining Hall table set, activity areas prepared - so that girls and parents can get a true taste of Camp.

And after your official tour is over, you are welcome to stick around to swing on the big rope swing and enjoy the fresh mountain air.

If this is something you’d be interested in, please send an email to Kelsie to set it up.

Of course, we are happy to give a tour anytime, not just on these specific dates.

We are offering these two weekends for a chance to catch Camp at its best.
