Summit Day Camp


Seven students from Summit School in Winston-Salem, NC were able to get a firsthand perspective into the wonders of the Blue Ridge during a week of exploration lead by the Blue Ridge Discovery Center.  

With activities such as fly fishing, snorkeling a small Appalachian stream, kayaking in the New River, catching butterflies, birding and summiting Stone Mountain, the group was able to experience several of the ecological wonders of the Blue Ridge.  Emphasizing curiosity based learning, the day camp focused on skills to become a naturalist within an immersive setting.
