Adventure Camp

Adventure Camp is an off-site, field trip-based camp for the true outdoor enthusiast. All campers must be able to pass a swim test and be ready to hike, swim, and explore the Blue Ridge Parkway. Open to children ages 9-13. 

At Adventure Camp, kids come home tired, happy and with a new experience every day! This camp is designed for the extreme outdoor enthusiasts to have the BEST summer ever! Campers spend the week exploring WNC's swimming holes and hiking trails. They take on exhilarating outdoor activities and develop deep appreciation of our local landscape. 

Past Adventure Camp sessions have featured horseback riding, river tubing, white water rafting, paint balling, high ropes courses, bouldering, and more.
