In addition to all of the fun activities at camp, we offer many out-of-camp trips. These trips are designed to help our campers appreciate being outdoors and to allow them the opportunity to demonstrate many of the skills they learn at camp in some of the most beautiful locations in the Southeast.
These trips are for Two Week campers and are determined by grade. There is no additional cost for the trips as it is included in the camp fee.
Campers who have finished the sixth grade have the opportunity to go rock climbing and rappelling on a half-day trip near the beautiful DeSoto State Park (about 15 minutes from camp).
