Camp Lou Henry Hoover: Resident Camp
Welcome to Camp Lou Henry Hoover Residential Summer Camp, located in Middleville, NJ! Camp Hoover has been shaping great summer memories for girls in grades 1 to 12 since 1953 through learning, discovering, exploring, challenging and creating! Each summer, Camp Hoover provides a variety of programs and sessions, designed to meet the interests of ALL girls.
Our 2013 Camp sessions run from July 7 through August 17. You are grouped according to interest, age and ability in order to make your stay more enjoyable. In addition to your program theme, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of camp activities including crafts, nature, hiking, archery, ropes course, games, cookouts and waterfront activities like swimming and boating. You will develop responsibility through “kapers” ( jobs that help keep Hoover in order) and other fun and enriching activities. Camp Hoover is a journey into independence – a place where you and your counselors plan weekly adventures together in a relaxed, non-competitive environment.
Hoover offers two experiences: General and Specialty.
General Camp programs enable you to experience an array of camp activities every day. Specialty Camp programs focus on a particular interest combined with traditional camp activities like swimming, cook-outs and crafts. Housing depends on the program you choose – you can share large platform tents equipped with cots and a storage area. Just a few steps away from the tents are the lavatory facilities with flush toilets, hot and cold running water, sinks and showers. The dining hall and program buildings are located within walking distance of the tent units. You may choose to share our contemporary buildings, equipped with kitchens, bathroom facilities, sleeping rooms and a common room for gathering.
Camp Care Packages available through GSHNJ and Camp Pacs
