Description

Rooted in the finest traditions of summer camping, Camp Alleghany was founded in 1922 by Dr. Walter Hullihen, founder and owner of Camp Greenbrier for Boys.  With the help of director Hugh Worthington, Dr. Hullihen modeled Alleghany after Camp Aloha in Vermont, where his daughter Helen attended as a young girl. The programs and traditions established in those early years continue today with true faith to the founders' ideals. Camp Alleghany's leadership passed to the Dawson family in 1963 when S. Cooper Dawson, Jr. became the director and owner. Alleghany continues today under the directorship of his son, Sam Dawson. With the help of his staff, and the assistance of his wife Bonnie and daughter Elizabeth, Sam works to continue the ideals begun in 1922 and provide girls a place to grow in confidence and develop their leadership potential.

Camp Alleghany is an all-girls' overnight summer camp located in the Alleghany Mountains in Greenbrier County, West Virginia. Girls aged 8 to 16 spend three weeks at a time on the beautiful and peaceful banks of the Greenbrier River, away from the many distractions of the school year.

As the oldest girls' camp in the Virginias, Alleghany has continually upheld the purposes established by her founders more than 80 years ago.  Camp Alleghany educates young women in the principles of sportsmanship, citizenship, cooperation, consideration for others, the Honor System, and meaningful appreciation of cultural and spiritual traditions. These goals are achieved in a lively, relaxed, and fun setting, allowing the girls to enhance their self-esteem and boost their confidence while growing in maturity and responsibility.
