Appalachian Adventures

This (6 night, 7 day) overnight camp covers all the bases when it comes to adventure! Join us for an introduction to some of the thrilling and eye opening recreational activities Virginia and the Blue Ridge Mountain Region has to offer. We will set up base camp in Hillsville, VA and spend the week traveling to various locations in order to pack as much adventure into the week as possible. Our basecamp cabin will have bathroom/shower with running water and full kitchen in cabin for meals and gear storage. Campers, however, will spend the week under the stars grouping up in canvas tents in the field around the cabin.

Each day, we will travel no more than 1-2 hours to participate in one of the many activities we have planned. Campers will spend time on the New River in VA, not too far from the cabin during a canoe/kayak float in search of small mouth bass. They will enjoy a day of Guided Rock Climbing in the New River Gorge in West Virginia. During the week, we will also give back to the beautiful states of Virginia and West Virginia by collecting community service hours through a Trash Clean Up. Campers will participate in day a hike on the Appalachian Trail in Grayson Highlands State Park, with a mission to summit Mount Rogers. Super exciting, as this is the highest peak in VA! Later in the week, we will travel back to the New River Gorge to go White Water Rafting on the Lower New River! But thats not all, we also have the great privilege of a day of Private Conventional Trout Stream Fishing in Wolf Creek! So join us for a great week of fun in the sun, big adventures, new experiences, and life long memories. See you outside!

Lodging/Food: All meals during the week will be provided by Virginia Outside.
