Discovery Camp


While camping along Fox Creek in Grayson County, campers were immersed into the wonders of the Blue Ridge. The week-long Discovery Camp included activities such as snorkeling Fox Creek, photography, catching butterflies, birding, primitive technology, and local geology. The campers gained skills to become naturalists while experiencing the ecological wonders of the Blue Ridge. 

Six local children attend the camp through The Rudolph and Louise Tilson Scholarship Fund. which was generously provided by The Friends of Mount Rogers in support of youth exploration of the Mount Rogers area.  

The Friends of Mount Rogers is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the appreciation and enjoyment of the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area by supporting it and its heritage through education, cooperation, financial assistance, and volunteer service. For more information, visit:
