Summer Camps 2019

Wild Weeks

In previous summers, this has inspired many activities including tubing, group field games, paddling, hiking, stream walks, face painting, raft and shelter building, fishing and critter catching. Each day is new and wide open.

Teen Expedition 2019 will leave Monday morning for the beautiful Fontana Lake on the edge of the Great Smokies. There they will spend 2 days and nights canoeing, camping, and exploring the wild shores and beautiful waters. Once back on dry land, the group will spend one night out on the trail as they backpack along ridges and over peaks before descending into Nantahala Gorge.

Counselor-In-Training Week

Counselor In Training program

Counselor-In-Training week is an opportunity for CITs to have the camp all to themselves as they train and hang with each other under the guidance of our experienced camp leaders. 

Being a CIT at Adventure Camp is a great opportunity to grow beyond a camper and experience camp life as a counselor. CITs will learn about their role and responsibilities and safety procedures. They will also participate in training focused on leadership, group management, and conflict resolution. 

By the end of the week, our CITs will have confidence in their ability to be leaders in Wild Weeks, Kin Ye camps, and beyond. 

June 24 - 28

8:30 AM - 4:00 PM 

Ages: 12-15
