Campus Life


At Chatham Hall, there is no shortage of fun things to do on a daily basis!
You might meet up for movie night or to tie-dye some clothes. Maybe you'll grill out with friends or whip up a gourmet meal in the student kitchen. Seasonal activities are always a huge hit, so expect to carve pumpkins, build gingerbread houses, and hunt for Easter eggs!
Off campus, there’s even more to do. The School regularly offers recreational trips such as skiing at Wintergreen Resort, swimming and boating at Smith Mountain Lake, taking in the cuisine of a great restaurant in Greensboro, and bowling or laser tag in Lynchburg. Perhaps shopping, the movies, or dinner out in Danville, Lynchburg, or Durham are more your speed? Trips to museums, concerts, plays, musicals, and festivals in any number of nearby cities are also popular options. Excursions to places like Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Asheville, NC, are great opportunities to tap into the tremendous history and culture of the region.
Want to meet students from other schools? Board a charter bus to a mixer or dance, or to a gathering at an amusement park, outdoor event or community service opportunity. Above all, you get to choose the boarding school activities that are right for you, and the options are plentiful.
