Some Background and History
Camp Eagle Hill was founded in the late winter of 1963 and opened for its first summer the very same year. A one-time dude ranch where guests would visit to ride horses, milk cows, and enjoy the great outdoors, Camp Eagle Hill started with just a few buildings and facilities. In 1963, sixty campers experienced our first unforgettable summer with us, participating in all the fun of a camp season and building lifelong friendships.
Over the years, Eagle Hill has added tremendously to its facility and is now filled with beautiful sports fields and courts, two pools, a tremendous gymnasium, a gymnastics pavilion, a large double looped go-cart track and many large indoor areas that provide our campers with a varied choice of activities regardless of the weather. Over the years, our camp population has grown and these days we have somewhere in the range of about 250 campers. Despite our growth over time, Eagle Hill has maintained its sense of history from its early days, promoting the same qualities of participation and camaraderie for its campers over the course of the past five decades.
