Camp Southern Ground is where goodness grows. They strive to teach campers about kindness, community, and respect for differences. At CSG, different isn’t better or worse, it’s just different! Grammy-award winner Zac Brown founded Camp Southern Ground with the purpose of getting kids outside in an inclusive and tech-free environment.
From day one, our campers will grow, harvest, and eat food from our on-site organic garden. They will learn and develop fun life skills like bike riding, swimming, cooking, archery, and more. Kids here will make a mess eating s’mores around the campfire, create projects in our art and STEM classes, and push themselves out of their comfort zones on our amazing 1200 ft. zip line and multi-level ropes course. This is a place where young people can explore over 400 acres of wilderness, build relationships with their peers and counselors, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Camp Juliette Low celebrates outdoor living and recreation through fun programs like archery, horseback riding, canoeing, rock-climbing, fire building, and hiking.

Counselors provide a safe, nurturing, and inclusive environment for girls to grow and thrive.
One-week, two-week and mini-sessions available for girls ages 8-15. Sessions run from June 5 – July 30. For additional information, visit the links below:
