Why Jeanne d’Arc?

In 1922, when Camp Jeanne d’Arc was established, Joan of Arc was a popular topic of conversation. Camp Jeanne d’Arc’s founder, Ruth McIntrye, greatly admired the qualities of faith, endurance, courage, and confidence exemplified by the young 15th-century girl, and decided that Joan would be a wonderful inspiration for her campers. Jeanne d’Arc is the French pronunciation of Joan of Arc.

Today, Camp Jeanne d’Arc continues to emphasize the exemplary qualities of faith, endurance, courage and confidence. Camp Jeanne d’ Arc celebrates faith of all kinds. Campers are encouraged to strengthen their own faith, whatever that may be, as well as respect the faith of others.

Jeanne d'Arc, Joan of Arc

TESTIMONIALS

The Best Decision We Could Have Made

Originally, this was a very tough decision to send our little girl away to camp for weeks at such a young age. These thoughts occurred now many years ago. In retrospect, this was the best decision we could have made for this little girl. She now is a young lady at the age of 16, with worldly experiences and so many accomplishments that occur at camp. By meeting so many diverse and interesting people and being surrounded by loving and caring leaders, has so greatly enriched her life. It has given her perspective about the true meaning and the reality of life to become an independent, thoughtful, caring, insightful, self confident young lady. The happiest moment each year for her is the start of camp, the saddest moment is leaving at the end of camp but within a week she is counting the days till camp next year! The friendships and skills she has developed at camp will last a life time.
