Eagle Island - Where History Meets the Future
Mission statement: Donated by the Graves family in 1937 to provide learning opportunities and out-of-door experiences for girls and young women, Eagle Island Camp has developed generations of women leaders. The mission of Friends of Eagle Island, Inc., is to perpetuate this legacy by providing an environmentally responsible Adirondack island camping experience for diverse youth, with an emphasis on girls and young women, while preserving Eagle Island’s natural and historic character.
Attending a summer camp that challenges their abilities in this setting is key to keeping girls connected to the natural world throughout their lives, and giving them confidence in their own capabilities. This camp experience has served to strengthen and enlighten girls for a lifetime.
On November 6, 2015, Friends purchased Eagle Island from Girl Scouts Heart of NJ. Friends is currently working to resume operations on Eagle Island as a place of learning and adventure for everyone.
