About MatoakaThe choice of a camp for your daughter is important because camp is more than an extension of your daughter’s home life–camp is a vehicle to enrich your daughter’s emotional, spiritual and physical life beyond the limits of her school and home environment. Camp Matoaka explores your daughter’s potential under the selective guidance of a fine, mature staff of teachers and college students.
Matoaka’s program is tailored to fit the individual, allowing each camper to progress at her own skill level. The ultimate goal is preparing each camper for a richer and fuller adult life through the use of leisure sports and creative talents. Our structured daily program includes activities and special events taught under professional supervision by counselors from around the world. All instructional activities are open to every camper, six days per week, five periods per day. No camper will ever find herself closed out of an activity.
In addition, our state-of-the-art facilities include a fully equipped indoor gymnasium, a modern Recreation Hall/Dining Room, newly constructed Health Center as well as recently renovated bathrooms in every cabin. The Matoaka Arts Center houses arts and crafts, photography, sewing, jewelry making, needlecraft and ceramics.
In activities of a competitive nature, a spirit of friendly competition is emphasized rather than winning, so campers of all abilities can participate freely. In every team or individual sport and in every activity, we stress effort, improvement, and achievement through staff encouragement, expert instruction and weekly rewards for accomplishment. Along with our individually scheduled five instructional periods per day, each camper has two elective periods daily, during which time she may participate in the activity where her special interests lie and receive semi- private instruction.
