Mother-Daughter Weekend

Let us take care of the details while you and your daughter spend a weekend playing together in the mountains at camp. If your daughter has been here before she’ll enjoy showing you everything she loves about camp. If this is her first year then you can begin learning our Merri-Mac traditions together. We are planning all the ingredients for the best weekend of your year including a selection of our favorite activities, a few camp fires and songs, and maybe even an out of camp trip.

Where will I be staying?

Moms and daughters will stay in camp cabins with other families with similar aged children. You may request to be with a particular family if you would like.

What is the cost?

$890 for a mom and daughter, plus $400 for each additional child.

How do I enroll?

This link will take you to our application. From there you can choose to add the Mother Daughter Weekend as a session.

Why should I do this?

  • Because camp is fun – really it’s great!
  • The best way to build a strong relationship with your daughter is to love what she loves.

What about my son?

We’d love for him to join us for our Father/Son Weekend.

What if we are not going to camp this summer?

This weekend is a great way for anyone to get to know Merri-Mac and decide if they want to be campers in the future.

What about travel?

Most of our families will drive, but it is also easy to fly into the Asheville airport and rent a car from there. You can also catch a Uber from the airport, but it is very difficult to get one from camp back.
