Founded in 1926, Waldemar is a beloved all-girls camp set in the Texas foothills along the Guadalupe River. It's stunning. And so popular that it's hard to get into—this is going to sound crazy, but parents actually sign their kids up when they're born. Every girl is a member of a tribe and earns points for her tribe throughout camp for everything from good manners to field day victories (on the final day, a tribe winner is announced). The girls live in stone kampongs, which is a South Sea Island word for a house on stilts. And activities are divided into water sports, land sports, and the arts. Girls between fourth and eleventh grade can attend one of Waldemar's two monthlong sessions. There is also a shorter, one-week term for girls entering second through fifth grades.
