Keyauwee Program Center

Keyauwee Program Center, an all girls camp, is located just south of Greensboro in Randolph County on 350 acres. It is a multipurpose site with an Olympic-size swimming pool and diving well, riding stables with a covered arena, 50-foot Alpine Tower, archery range, sports court, several large playing fields and a climbing tower.

At Keyauwee, we allow children to enjoy being children! We keep the girls active, busy and having fun as they climb, swim, ride and craft their way through their time with us in a safe environment. Being an ACA-accredited camp means parents can rest assured their child will be safe, as they develop their courage, confidence and character – without even realizing it!

Garrett “Gandalf” Reed, Ranger/Site Coordinator

Garrett Reed
joined the Keyauwee Program Center team early in 2017, bringing with him a passion for scouting, handy-man skills, and a love for the flora and fauna of the North Carolina Piedmont. In his earlier years, Garrett spent his time delving into the woods with his Boy Scout troop, volunteering his time and holding nearly every youth position available in Boy Scouts. He earned his Eagle Scout rank in 2010, and proceeded to spend the next 6 years of his career burning iron and crafting steel as a Journeyman Welder and Metal Fabricator across North Carolina and Georgia. He brings with him to Keyauwee his family, including his incredible wife and partner Haylee; his young dog Neville; and his two, simultaneously disinterested and curious, felines Hermione and Lovegood. Garrett is incredibly excited to be involved in improving and building the future of Keyauwee, and looks forward to seeing it through many of it’s grand seasons to come.
