How many international campers come to Stone Mountain Adventures?
About 20% of our population is from outside the USA. All activities and cabin activities are instructed in English. The immersion into the American culture is part of the cultural experience for our internationals.
Will international campers be in a cabin with other non-English speakers?
Due to the size and capacity of some cabins, there is some likelihood that international campers may share a cabin with others from around the world. When possible, we arrange cabins with a good mix of Americans and International campers. Very little time is spent in the cabins each day, and our counseling staff do a very good job of maintaining an English-speaking cabin.
How many international campers from one country will be at SMA?
We accept no more than seven campers per session who are native speakers in a given language. One of the purposes of most families enrolling their teenager in a summer camp in the USA is to learn more conversational English language. This avoids the tendency to just spend time with your primary language speakers.
When booking flights please book them on a morning departure, arriving at Dulles International Airport, Washington, DC, between 2pm and 6pm.
Your camper will be met by a Stone Mountain staff member immediately upon their arrival at International Arrivals, after they go through customs. We will call you when we meet them and again when they arrive at camp.
Upon arrival in the US, your camper should use the following address on all immigration forms:
Stone Mountain Adventures
9803 Old Hawn Rd
Huntingdon, PA 16652

Do I Need Spending Money?
