Paddles & Peaks: 1 Week Session

June 27 – July 3, 2021

This action-packed week begins in our Sunrise Village and journeys out to explore some of the most scenic areas of the Appalachian Mountains. This week includes an overnight canyon canoe trip, camping and climbing at world-famous Seneca Rocks, wild caving deep under the mountains, and your choice of a Zip Line Canopy Tour or Via Ferrata climbing experience to top off your adventures.  

Rock & River: 1 Week Session

July 4 – July 10, 2021

Experience a premier climbing destination, underground caving, and world-class whitewater all in one week! This fun-filled week begins in our Sunrise Village before packing up to camp and climb at Seneca Rocks.  After extensive time honing our climbing skills and rope handling on the rocks we head underground to explore the depths of a wild cave. A trip to the New River Gorge for whitewater rafting is a highlight of the week and makes for great stories around the campfire!  Throughout the trip we are camping in tents and preparing many of our own meals.  This small group experience is a fantastic way to spend quality outdoor time.

Survival Camp: 1 Week Session

August 1 – 7, 2021

Learn wilderness survival skills!  Possessing skills to travel safely in the great outdoors has proven to be a fun and effective way to develop self-confidence and leadership skills —not to mention lasting friendships!  We spend time at camp and then hit the trail. Map and compass, fire building, shelter building, and more are woven into this wonderful adventure.  Toward the end of the week, we take a break from the shelter of the forest to enjoy a fun-filled day of rafting on the New River Gorge.

Explore the Camp

Our location has been described by many as breathtaking. As you follow the trail through the riverside meadows and across the bridge you come to our “camp village.” Here you will find our office, health center, dining hall, cabins, art center, and a host of recreational and training facilities such as our sports fields, basketball court, bike skills park, equestrian arena, pond, climbing walls, challenge course, swimming pool, and more. Beyond the camp village is where much of the magic takes place amongst the meadows and endless forest. Savoring a freshly picked carrot from our gardens or taking in the view from the high meadows on a mountain board run are long remembered. It is here where the fundamental joy of being a kid is all the excitement that is needed.
