About Camp Highlander

Teamwork | Servant Leaders | Creatives | Problem Solvers | Adventurers

Camp Highlander is a residential summer camp in Mills River, North Carolina, devoted to the growing and nurturing of boys and girls, ages 6-16, in a safe, fun-filled, and electronics-free environment. Since 1957, we have partnered with parents and families to build character and confidence in the lives of children as we provide lifelong memories, authentic friendships, and an undeniable sense of being loved.

Imagine summer days filled with endless adventures, exciting challenges and unbridled fun. Now imagine sharing those days with ten happy campers who admire you, look up to you and depend on you as both a leader and a friend. Whether you’re screaming for joy as you slide down the cold water of Sliding Rock, or you’re cheering on your campers as you conquer the Crow’s Nest together, every moment of every day on camp is filled with countless opportunities to play with, encourage and positively impact the life of a child.

At Camp Highlander, we have a devoted group of staff who return summer after summer because this mountain (and those who call it home) means something to them. A summer at Highlander can be the most rewarding and most enjoyable job you will ever have. We invite you to join our team and experience the life-changing wonder of Camp Highlander!
