Summer camps have been a part of Transylvania County’s history since the early 1900s. In fact, Transylvania County is home to the oldest private girl’s summer camp in the southeast. Currently, there are 15 summer camps in Transylvania County, earning us the distinction of “Camp Country USA.” Welcome! We invite you to use this page to make the most of your trip to Brevard and Transylvania County this summer.
