Campus Life


Beautiful Ferrum campusLocated 35 miles southwest of Roanoke, Virginia, Ferrum College provides a relaxed, informal atmosphere with the conveniences and security of a small campus. Residence halls, classrooms, dining hall, and recreational facilities are located within easy walking distance. Campus security is maintained by Campus Police Officers. Specially selected camp counselors are assigned to each group of 8-to-10 campers and provide supervision at all times. Campers and staff are housed in an air conditioned residence hall.


At FCSEC, we believe that a healthy self-concept is essential for fully developing one’s talents and skills. The daily academic program is balanced with a variety of social and recreational activities designed to promote personal growth, team-building and an appreciation of individual differences and abilities. The camp motto is reinforced daily in a variety of ways as campers are encouraged to approach new learning situations with an “I-CAN-DO-IT” attitude.
