Our Philosophy

A clear, specific philosophy has guided our businesses for almost 45 years.


At Camp Eagle Wing, we aim to grow boys to… Gentlemen, and girls to…Ladies. And, we believe that a Lady and a Gentleman possess a specific set of virtues: Love, Selflessness, Temperance, Chasteness, Compassion, and Self-Control. We do not conduct classes in these virtues or instruct children in morality (the non-denominational chapel excepted). The camp environment naturally, and yet intentionally, encourages boys and girls to mature, which may account for the numerous parents who report, “I sent up a boy. You sent me home a young man.  I sent up a girl, I now have a young woman. Thank you.” It is our hope and intention that we can be an ally for parents as they shepherd their children through this process of growing up.
