Philosophy & Tradition

Lochearn Moto - To be honest, to be kind, to seek a deeper understanding of the beauty about us. To make the whole camp happier for our being here. To make and keep friends, but to do so without surrendering our ideals, and above all to keep friends with ourselves. To grow to have more courage and self-confidence, and take home an open mind and a kind and caring heart.

Keeping the Lochearn
Spirit Alive

Thousands of girls have built on a powerful spirit that’s been part of our summer community for almost 100 years. It’s impossible not to get swept away by it when our entire camp family is singing by the campfire, sharing the excitement of blue and green team events or raising our voices in song during dinner. The Lochearn spirit lives in your heart during the summer, but it stays with you all year long. Through school and beyond, you will always remember and be grateful for having captured the Lochearn spirit!
