2017 Summer Camps and Youth Programs
Building the next generation of stewards.
Our mission is to inspire curiosity, discovery and stewardship through the wonders of the Blue Ridge. Through that mission we envision a world with a deep understanding and appreciation of place.
We accomplish this by connecting people to nature through immersion programming. Our camps are led by highly skilled guides who understand how to develop curiosity, foster autonomy and be model citizens. With a focus on interest-driven and hands-on learning, and a low staff to child ratio, our campers develop skills and life-enriching hobbies that will pay dividends for years to come. We utilize a scientific investigative approach to develop critical thinking skills and inspire further engagement.
Adventure is not the end, but rather a gateway to developing deeper connections with your surroundings. The farther you push the closer you get to discovery.
* Limited need and/or merit-based scholarships are available for all camps. To apply for scholarship assistance please view our Scholarship Application
