Camp Caverns is a residential summer camp in Southeast, Tennessee, dedicated to exploration and growth. Our mission at Camp Caverns is to provide girls and boys, ages 8-13, an epic experience that will be the highlight of their summer and one they will treasure for the rest of their lives.

Discover Camp Caverns

Weeks at Camp Caverns are filled with exploration and discovery. Your child will explore the great outdoors, from the historic and pastoral campus of the Dubose Center and the highlands of Monteagle Mountain to the rich Pelham Valley and 650 acres home to The Caverns. Your child will discover secret underground passages, the amazing history of the indigenous Woodland and Cherokee people and early Scots-Irish settlers, and the Highlander Folk School. Your child will practice courage and teamwork, participate in art and sports, and learn the value of perseverance and resilience. Most of all, they will discover timeless friendships that they will carry with them forever.

The rate for a session of camp is $1,200, which includes a $150 non-refundable, registration fee to reserve your camper's spot. Sibling discounts available.
