Welcome to Sophia Camp! Our mission is to cultivate the voice of our campers through a variety of expressive arts, skills and relationships, and it is our joy to be with these amazing, inspiring young women.
This website is designed to be a voice of Sophia, a place where many voices weave together to sing the song of life, joy, wisdom and friendship. Please scroll through our blog to learn about our Camp. Many of the posts have been written by our Campers, and all of the videos have been produced by them.We hope you will enjoy learning about our Camp, as we have certainly enjoyed creating these memories with our Sophia Campers.
SOPHIA CAMP REGISTRATION
For more information, please download our brochure. But please note that the camp schedule in the brochure is from a Camp retreat we held a few years back. To see a standard version of our daily schedule, scroll down the home page to find the post “Sophia Days.”
To register for camp, there are two steps:
- Sophia Camp 2018 Registration Form
I wish I knew how to put registration into an online format. For now, I ask for your patience in downloading the form, filling it out and mailing it in (address is on the form).
- Payment. You can send a check with the registration form, or click here for Paypal, where you can also use a credit card.
Please know that we are usually able to offer 3-4 full scholarships each year, thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Dolores Forsythe, Banyan Botanicals and my own amazing mother. Please email me to discuss that option.

Carolyn! Laura! What can we say. The Sophia Camp was everything we could have hoped for and then some. There is such a strong pull on girls, and much of it can be negative, or at the least, overwhelming. This camp has shown the girls another perspective, one based in self-respect, self-confidence and in personal awareness and truth. Emma came away with skills to stand firm and tall in who she really is, and to embrace her nature and naturalness. Every activity, guest, meal and project helped to build a greater sense of personal power through positive choice. We will carry the many joys and blessings of this magical week throughout the coming year, and then some.
And I just want to thank you both so very much. You might not know how much we needed this experience for Emma. I am eternally grateful that you welcomed Emma as a junior counselor…having her surrounded by such wonderful girls and by the two of you, by Marjorie and Meagan, Areli and Melissa, by each guest…she was finally able to see in others what she might want to become…grounded, able to see the beauty in all, fearless, expansive, joyful. There is no price on this sort of unfolding…I’m just so glad for Emma. I send you both much love…. ~ Emma’s Mom
Thank you so much for holding camp and allowing Talia to attend. It was such a positive experience! Talia really enjoyed bonding with the other girls–that alone is priceless. It’s a gift to know that it’s possible to form new relationships outside the usual circle. She also very much enjoyed the pool time and the walks.
She talked quite a bit about the museum tour and dressing in period clothing, so I know that was fun for her. I also think the activity where others filled her journal with positive descriptors was really great. So often (particularly at this age), girls tear each other down. I am certain it was nice for all of the girls to experience the power of positive perception and acceptance.
Talia talked a lot about the camp counselors and seemed to really enjoy their perspective and spending time with them. She looked forward to going every day and was sad when it was over (both signs of a really successful experience). She would love a reunion.
Again, thank you so much for everything.. Honestly, it was all just GREAT. ~ Talia’s Mom
Thank you all for creating a space where our daughters were able to grow both separately & together. Ella enjoyed her week at Sophia Camp. She especially liked swimming & the self care products. She really seemed to be interested in the Ayurveda and the qualities specific to the different doshas. I also think the yoga may have contributed to some emotional release I noticed the 2nd evening – either it was that or hormones, or both 🙂All in all it was a great value, a wonderful week & a reunion sounds like a great idea! ~ Ella’s Mom
I for ONE couldn’t be more impressed w/ about EVERY aspect of the camp, leaders, teachings etc ~ the girls were truly bonded by the end & Bryn looks forward to the “reunion” in the fall. ALL involved received Value, Positive Encouragement, Support & BLISS! xoxo Bryn’s Mom
