Historic Waldemar

Since 1926

A former school teacher and principal, Miss Ora Johnson established Waldemar in 1926. The Elmore family has continued the Waldemar legacy since 1979. Waldemar is one of the oldest continuously run camping operations in the United States, and is considered one of the finest girls’ summer camps in the Nation. Every summer, over 800 girls from all over the country travel to their haven on the banks of the Guadalupe River. Our mission, created in 1926 remains the same; to foster the spiritual, mental, and physical growth of every girl while maintaining the highest standards.
