Welcome to Camp Lou Henry Hoover Girls only Sleepaway Camp!

Since 1953, Camp Hoover has been providing unique experiences that create life-changing memories. Time spent among the forests, hills, and lake of Camp Hoover’s 340 acres is a journey into independence—a place where you’ll test your limits, expand your horizons, hone your skills, overcome fears, get outside, unplug, learn, grow, and make lots of friends.

Sleepaway camp runs from July 7 through August 17, 2024, starting on Sunday and ending on Saturday each week.

There are two types of programs to choose from at Camp Hoover: general and specialty. General programs offer an array of outdoor activities, experiences, and challenges appropriate for your age and skill level like swimming, boating, archery, ropes course, arts & crafts, hiking, outdoor skills, games, singing, and more!

Specialty programs focus on a particular interest, spending part of each day concentrating on what you’re most interested in. The rest of the time, you’re doing the fun stuff included in our general programs like swimming, boating, archery, and more! Plus, there’s plenty of all-camp activities like kapers (jobs that help keep camp running smoothly), campfires, and gathering for meals in the dining hall. No matter which one you choose, our programs grow with you, acknowledging mastery of a skill and inviting you to take the next step up and out!

The program you choose determines your housing type. In some programs, you’ll share a platform tent equipped with metal cots, mattresses, and a storage cubby. Our platform tents sleep five campers in each unit. Just a few steps away from the tents are the bathroom facilities (known as the Cindy) with flush toilets, hot and cold running water, sinks, and showers. Unit program shelters provide a covered area for meetings, cookouts, and unit activities. Indoor shelter is available during severe storms.

In some programs, you’ll bunk in a cabin equipped with kitchens, indoor bathroom facilities, sleeping rooms with bunk beds, and common rooms. In Outdoor Survival, you’ll sleep in a primitive shelter, with a bathroom facility that includes flush toilets and sinks with running water. An open-air, covered shelter provides cover; but don’t worry, you’ll get to shower at other sites during your stay.
