Nannie Crump West, Christian missionary and youth
advocate, founded Camp Mont Shenandoah in 1927 for
girls from Virginia's elite families. This residential
summer camp, like others established along the
Cowpasture River early in the 20th century,
embodied the ideals of America's camp movement,
a reaction to the perceived physical and moral
decline associated with urban living. Here girls
were taught to develop self-reliance, strong
character, and appreciation of nature's beauty
through outdoor adventure. The camp's Rustic-style
buildings, most dating to the 1920s, were designed
to blend with the surrounding landscape. Camp
Mont Shenandoah is among Virginia's oldest
independent residential girls' camps.
