Today is Flashback Friday and we thought we’d dip into the ol’ Camp “Vault” for some treasures. This one is brought to y’all from a 1987 publication entitled “Gaar Mountain Magic”, a piece of Camp history which includes old Camp recipes along with Camp and local histories and anecdotes. The photos are old and not the most clear, but a very cool glimpse of Camp past and traditions. A few of you may even recognize some of these spots. Enjoy! ✨
Dear friends of Camp,
We’re cookin’ up some fun little projects but we need your help! First, we are on the hunt for photos of VINTAGE (1990’s and beyond, the older the better) Camp Varsity tees. Do you or any of your camp pals have favorite old camper tees kicking around?

We’d love to see em and share em: please email any photos to [email protected]. ✨🛶
Hello, Fall! 🍂
Week 8 is bringing the heat! ☀️ Our last week of the summer is always an incredibly special one - this summer even more so than ever!
We had a super special “wake up bell” this morning! Week 7 is a magical one: the weather is cool this week and the garden is popping, so that means garden to table time, on Camp hiking and good old campfires. Some of our oldest campers worked on the final touches for our new Camp sharing library! 📚

Week 6 is in full swing!
CV Campers have been designing and finishing up their cabin flags this week!🏴‍☠️
To say we have the most dedicated Camp Staff would be an understatement

An Experience with Friends and Nature in the Blue Ridge Mountains Camp Varsity is a 125 acre farm located at the base of Gaar Mountain on the edge of the Shenandoah National Park in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

We are a general recreational camp and have been around since 1966. Campers enjoy the natural beauty of the great outdoors, not only at our Camp, but also at White Oak Canyon, Old Rag Mountain, Rose River, Robinson River, Rapidan River, and Hoover's Camp, which are all short drives from our farm.

Operating as usual

Week 4! Loooooots of fun campy goodness with our campers this week: fire building, fishing, Cowboys and Aliens visiting Gaar, lake and river time, cabin campfires, arts and crafts, dodgeball, and some milk jug lacrosse. It is a beautiful week here at Camp! ☀️

Our youngest campers have taken such great care of our horses this week! Lots of creek and lake time, but cabin karaoke and an epic paper airplane flying contest made there way into the week 2 Camp mix!

Whoa. To say that we are excited, thrilled, relieved, and pumped up that VA overnight camps are officially able to operate this year would be a massive understatement. We are over. the. moon.

We are the buzziest, busy bees making plans for a most amazing summer. 🐝

Will Camp be different during Covid? Of course. But the fun and wonders of connection with friends and nature - the absolute magic of Camp, will be stronger than ever.

We absolutely cannot wait to share it with your campers!

Good morning, from Camp! ☀️

Man, we sure do miss our campers and Staff! Our bell is a familiar sound heard all over the mountain and for those who have spent time at Camp know this sound well.

As a nod to this tradition, even though we are mostly apart, our bell is ringing here today on Gaar for you!
