Hidden Valley Camp is a private, independent camp accredited by the American Camp Association. HVC was founded in 1947 and has been owned and operated by the McKinlay family since 1973.

Best place on earth. The people, the variety of activities, the music--hard to pick just one best thing. It's a wholesome, secure place where kids can relax and be kids. Truly some of the best times of my life, as a camper and counselor.
My twins attended this camp and live on Maui in Hawaii and they said it was the number one experience they have ever had!!! They made some life long new friends that I am sure will be visiting us on Maui in the future:)
