Explorers

July 9 - July 22

Explorers is an outdoor adventure program for campers 12 – 14 years old (rising 7th – 9th graders).

Our Explorer campers get a unique camp experience in the outdoors. Campers are based in one of two adirondacks located at the base of the Mountain. During the first week at camp, they learn techniques and skills to be used in back country camping. These skills range from fire building to orienteering to cooking on a camp stove. The Explorers also go on practice hikes, rock climb on Monkey Face and build their team skills on our challenge courses. The second week of the Explorers program is spent camping in the back country. During this time, campers are engaged in fun workshops (have you ever tie dyed a shirt in the woods?), an over night hike to an amazing view on Rabun Bald, and then rafting down the thrilling Nantahala River.
