The Camp Experience


Brainy Camps at Blue Ridge School

A beautiful lake with canoes.

Blue Ridge School is a boarding school for boys, grades 9-12, located 20 miles from Charlottesville, VA, and 2 hours from Washington, DC. The campus is comprised of 750 acres in a beatific setting that lies at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The school has an outdoor athletic complex that includes an artificial turf football field, a six-lane track, 2 soccer fields and a baseball diamond. Other outdoor activities include hiking, mountain biking, rock wall climbing, canoeing, swimming, low and high ropes challenges and a zip line. Indoor activities offer a theater with stadium seating, 3 regulation basketball courts, a weight room and an art room equipped with spinning wheels and kiln. The cafeteria offers several options for each meal and is able to accommodate special dietary needs. The campers sleep in dorm rooms that are big enough for 4—one being a counselor—and each dorm floor offers a meeting place for kids to hang out and socialize. We have converted classrooms into medical sites to accommodate our needs.
