Since our founding in 1933, we have established our well-rounded program of activities and supportive community by staying steadfast to our shared mission, vision, values, and beliefs. This is what we are proud of; this is what makes Clearwater unique.
To foster confidence, courage, compassion and community – four points on Clearwater’s compass – by providing a traditional sleepaway camp experience for girls.
To provide the Clearwater Camp experience to as many girls as possible – because we know it makes a difference in their lives and they will make a difference in the world.
We value the call of the wild as echoed in the loon’s haunting cry, the beauty and wonder of the natural world around us.
We value the dip of the paddle, the peace of gliding over smooth waters, and yes, the ache and tiredness that come from a day of battling a strong headwind.
We value song around the campfire, the remembrance of many wonderful shared experiences, and the anticipation of the new.
We value the spirit of the Voyageurs and what it tells us about adventure, resilience, courage.
We value our beloved founders, Halokwe and Sunny, and all they taught us about community, camaraderie, friendship.
We value each other as companions, counselors, teachers, mentors, and we value ourselves as strong, confident girls and women.
We value a community rich with difference, welcoming, and supportive of all, where everyone feels the spark of belonging and calls Clearwater home.
