Auburn University and the historic YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly have enjoyed a long relationship and are partnering together this summer to offer the Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Camp in Black Mountain, North Carolina. This camp is offered to adventure-oriented rising 9th - 12th grade students and focuses on developing team building and leadership skill elements in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC.
Create fun and lasting memories while completing the Team Development Course, Alpine Tower, Giant Swing, and Odyssey Course (with zipline). Explore the mountain's 1,200 acres of woodlands with hikes on the High Windy Trail and mountain biking. Try your skills on the archery range, take afternoon swims, play basketball, or disc golf! There is also a Mountain Craft Shop where participants can try their Appalachian craftsmen skills making jewelry, pottery, candles, t-shirts and such.
Blue Ridge is full of adventures and all activities will be led by skillfully trained YMCA Blue Ridge staff and Summer Experience counselors from Auburn University. Camp participants will reside in Barnhardt Lodge, dine at the Blue Ridge Center, and have 24/7 supervision.
