Meriwether

Est. 2001

Camp Meriwether is located in Luthersville, GA (50 miles southwest of Metro Atlanta) and was established in 2001. There are 270 acres of rolling hills, shady woods and open fields. We have a remarkable summer camp and a place that captures the truly unique feeling of “home” for both campers and staff. Meriwether campers explore horseback riding, drama, the arts, and adventure. Stay cool at the pool and canoe, kayak and paddle board in the pond. The perfect summer adventure!

FAQ

Horseback Riding Classes & Placement

During our check-in process, we spend time interviewing and evaluating each camper’s riding skills. Campers are assigned specific time slots based on their individual skill level.

Unit / Cabin Life

Girls will be placed into units based upon ages and sessions. Unit life includes such things as cooking out, kapers, an activity, turtle time and talking with other girls and their counselors. Camp Meriwether’s cabins have air-conditioning and twin-size bunk beds. They sleep 12-16 girls. Each cabin will also have at least two counselors.

Can girls who are not Girl Scouts go to camp?

Yes, all girls are welcome to join the adventure at our camps. You don’t have to be a member of a girl scout troop to sign up for camp and try new things like cooking in the great outdoors or conquering the challenge course. Girls will need to become registered Girl Scouts to attend summer camp.

What if the pick-up or drop-off times do not work for us?

Scheduled drop off and pick up times are listed in your ‘What to Expect Packet’. If you need to arrive later than the scheduled drop off time, contact the camp director 1 week prior to the start of the camp session. Campers cannot arrive early before the drop off time because camp staff are getting ready for the session. If you need to pick up your camper early, before the pick up time, let the camp director know when you drop her off. There are no late pick up options.

Driving Directions

Take I-85 to Exit 41 (Moreland). Turn left onto U.S. Alt. 27-South. Go 7.7 miles to town of Luthersville. Turn left at traffic light onto East Oak Street/Luthersville-Rocky Mount Rd. Meadows Boone Road makes a sharp turn to the right. Follow the road around the corner, past the private residence, to the camp's main entrance on the left.
