Location & Setting

Camp village and farm

Our location has been described by many as breathtaking. Our campus is situated at 3000 feet elevation in the Allegheny Mountains, which form the border between Virginia and West Virginia.  Our 250-acre property is ideal for hiking, exploring, viewing wildlife (bald eagles, herons, and white-tailed deer to name a few), and visiting the friendly sheep and goats on our working farm.

Over the years as we have added to our campus we have been extremely mindful to maintain our tranquil setting. As you follow the trail through the riverside meadows and across the bridge you come to our “camp village.” Here you will find our office, health center, dining lodge, cabins, art center, and a host of recreational and training facilities such as our sports fields, basketball court, bike skills park, equestrian arena, pond, climbing wall, challenges course, swimming pool and more.   

The National Forest and adventures outside of camp

Several of our activities such as rock climbing, caving, and backpacking take place outside of camp. Surrounded by National Forest lands, we are fortunate in that our location allows us easy access to some of the more notable recreational areas on the east coast. Tremendous opportunities abound for world-class rock climbing, backpacking, and biking.

The Mountains are cool!

Camp sits at an elevation of 3000 feet above sea level.  This alpine setting provides ideal summer weather with temperatures 15 degrees cooler (or more) than mid-Atlantic areas.  

A Healthy Place

Our air is clean, our food fresh, and our water from wells deep in the mountains. A summer experience with CHM is a time to take a rest from screen time and enjoy the outdoors in the company of friends. This is a healthy place for children to spend their summers.

Travel options

Many of our families choose to drive to camp. The setting is wonderful and every year parents ask when we will offer a camp for them!
Another popular transportation option is our shuttle service for the Northern Virginia, D.C., and Maryland area. You may choose to utilize the shuttle to camp, from camp, or both ways. Campers ride on an air-conditioned coach bus along with new and old camp friends.  

Flying In?

We also offer a shuttle from Dulles International Airport in Sterling, Virginia.  Our staff will meet your child at the airport and assist as needed on the departure day.

Explore Camp Hidden Meadows

Our location has been described by many as breathtaking. Beyond the camp village is where much of the magic takes place amongst the meadows and endless forest. Savoring a freshly picked carrot from our gardens or taking in the view from the high meadows on a mountain board run are long remembered. It is here where the fundamental joy of being a kid is all the excitement that is needed.
