Camp Juliette Low is a private, non-profit summer camp for girls ages 7 to 17, accredited by the American Camp Association. CJL provides campers with fun and exciting ways to become more confident and competent, individually and in groups, through one-week and two-week outdoor residential programs. Juliette Gordon Low, founder of this camp and of the Girl Scouts, picked the location of CJL herself. The camp is located in the northwest corner of Georgia in one of the most beautiful spots in the southeastern United States.

Living Arrangements

CJL is all about the outdoors. Our campers live in four-person platform tents grouped by age into units of about 28 girls. Four staff members live in their own tent in the center of each unit. Each unit has its own shower and toilet facility, as well as a sheltered fire area and a "unit kitchen" for cook-outs.


Campers may choose to attend one-week or two-week sessions during the summer. (See the schedule for details.) Experienced campers are welcome to combine several sessions-stay with us a while!

The activities CJL offers focus on outdoor living skills and recreation: canoeing, archery, horseback riding, swimming, sailing, climbing wall, ropes course, crafts, tennis, and many others. See A Day in the Life for a glimpse of what goes on during a typical day at CJL.

We offer a special Parent-Daughter Weekend in the spring during which the highlights of a summer session are compressed into two days. This is a good way for young campers or uncertain parents to try out CJL.

Natural Beauty

Camp is located in one of the most beautiful spots in the southeast: the largely-undiscovered northwest corner of Georgia. The property is about 330 acres of mountaintop, encompassing a lake, several different kinds of forest, and nearly a mile of the middle fork of the Little River.

CJL's less natural facilities include a large swimming pool, a dining hall, tennis courts, a climbing wall, an ever-growing ropes course with both low and high elements, and many unit kitchens and cooking shelters. Our "Swinging" (suspension) Bridge over the rocky basin of Little River is a favorite attraction.

The original Juliette Low Lodge, built in 1922, still stands at the center of camp, a testament to the camp's history and traditions.
