Camp Philosophy and Staff
The purpose of Belle Meade Camp is to provide a supportive, nurturing environment with a balance between instruction and discovery/exploration. At Belle Meade, we believe that everyone learns and develops best in an atmosphere that respects each individual and encourages initiative, curiosity, and imagination. Respect for oneself, for others, and for the beautiful natural environment is a basic tenet of our camp. We encourage each individual to assume responsibility for his/her learning and behavior.
