Mountain Adventure Camp is hosted in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains near Ashville, North Carolina over Spring Break! This camp focuses on building leaders in the great outdoors. Not only will campers experience outdoor adventures, but they will get experiences in physical challenges, self-esteem, leadership, cooperation and teamwork, as well as reflection and application. Campers will be participating in the following activities throughout the week:
Team Building Course
Develop group communication skills, strategic thinking, teamwork, trust, and leadership through a series of challenging initiatives.
Tower & Swing
The tower starts with a ground teambuilding activity and continues with individual climbs supported by group encouragement. The swing lets you soar through the air in an exhilarating ride from 35 feet requiring team effort.
Night Hike & Campfire
Experience the dark forest, learn about nocturnal animals and night vision. Enjoy fun experiments with different types of light.
Odyssey Course with Zipline
The Odyssey course will inspire participants to support one another, communicate effectively, problem-solve efficiently and take calculated risks through interactive participation.
Feel the challenge and exhilaration of mountain biking on the 3.5-mile trail which winds around the beautiful 1,200-acre mountain.
Whether you are Robin Hood or Legolas, archery is fun for everyone. Participate in the course in the woods or in an open field range.
Reach for the sky as you test your skill on the six-sided vertical 50-foot straight wall.
High Windy Hike
The High Windy hike is a real mountain experience, an intensive three-mile trail to the summit of the mountain, or set your signs on the Mt. Mitchell Overlook.
Team members construct a primitive suspension bridge using ropes while learning bridge dynamics and designs, stress distribution and the natural strength of a triangle.
This camp is intended for rising 9th - 12th grade students.
