Some places and people become home and family forever, even after you have gone. Camp is one of those places. So grateful for Jump Mountain and my camp family.

Camp is absolutely the best place on earth! I spent 9 summers there and still wish I could go back every summer! The friends I made over those 9 summers will be friends for life. I love Lachlan!

I loved Maxwelton. It holds a special place in my heart. I keep a picture of jump mountain in my room so I’m reminded of the great times I had there. My stepfather went there in roughly the late 1940’s (is the toes memorial still standing?). I went there in the 1990’s and I plan on sending my kids there. It’s a great place. If you are thinking about sending your children there (to Maxwelton or Lachlan) I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed.

Hear what our campers, parents and Alumni have to say!

The best camp! Everyone belongs and is valued and loved at Camp Lachlan. It’s a special place run by special people. I cried every time I had to leave at the end of camp. I can’t wait to send my daughter in a year or two.

I loved it as a child and both of my children loved it! Our son, Taylor said that Maxwelton actually prepared him for dorm life at Hampden-Sydney!

My favorite place in the world!

I love watching our family’s third generation of campers having a blast and creating more camp memories!

I love Camp Lachlan! I have learned so many things just from being at camp, and I think that it is really important for me to give back as much as I can to the place that made me who I am today. I also love working with the girls and I cannot imagine another way to spend my summer!
