Amazing Recreation

 Overwhelmed at the thought of attending a big conference or planning your own summer camp experience? Worn out? We’ve got you covered with some amazing activities included at no extra cost and operated by trained staff!

***Some activities are limited in size.***


A trip down the Nantahala River will be the culmination of the adventure for the week with as all students go on a guided rafting trip. Price is included in registration!


Also known as Octoball, this game has swept across the nation at schools and camps over the past decade. It’s a mixture between four square and dodgeball played inside a three foot tall walled octagon. May the best camper win!


Our new air rifles are excellent fun and a great tool to teach gun safety.


One of our most popular activities! We have two parallel ziplines at 300′ long, and campers get to enjoy every foot of that as they fly securely through the air.


A new activity for teens for 2020. Few things at camp are more satisfying than sticking a tomahawk in our pine log targets.




Summer is the perfect time to have fun with water! There will be nearly daily opportunities to splash and play. We have an excellent swimming pool, slip-n-slide, and many of our field games may involve water activities as well.


Kayakers will enjoy a wonderful trip down the beautiful Hiawassee River with our trained staff. This will be an excellent prelude to the adventure they will experience white water rafting. /p>



We have over a dozen mountain bikes and a great location in nearby Jackrabbit Mountain. This is a perfect place for beginners to experience this adrenaline inducing activity for the first time. Experienced mountain bikers will get a chance to show off their skills as well. 

The first part of being prepared is being informed! 

Here are some answers to our most commonly asked questions.  

Do we need to bring chaperones?

Yes. Unlike our Boys Camp and Girls Camp, our staff will not stay in the cabins with the campers. This will allow a church to bring their own adults and invest first-hand into their youth. Our staff will be around to assist throughout the day. We suggest a 1:6 ratio of adults to campers.

If you are a camper that is interested in coming on your own, please let us know and we will see if there is a group that is able to plug you in with their youth.

What makes this camp a good option for youth groups?

Unlike a big conference youth will be able to be outside in nature, do more activities, and receive more personal attention. Leaders will appreciate the low cost, low stress, and extra time to rest. With us taking care of the majority of the logistics you’ll even have more time to invest in your youth.

What are the accommodations like?

We have excellent bunkhouses with two private bathrooms and enough space for 12-16 people per room. With a total or 12 rooms, we can handle groups of all different sizes. The mattresses are fairly new, inner spring mattresses, rather than the traditional camp foam mattresses. And yes, the rooms have AC.

Groups will be assigned lodging based on gender and church they came with.

What steps are taken to ensure my child's safety?

All staff and volunteers undergo a background check. During staff training counselors will be trained not only in basic first aid, but also to be aware enough to help prevent many incidents. The camp takes safety very seriously and endeavors to have a certified medical professional on property every week of summer camp. Staff are trained to facilitate activities and employs American Red Cross certified lifeguards. Also the camp is inspected on an annual basis. In 2021 the camp received a 100 health and safety rating from the NC Department of Health & Safety.

What should my child bring to camp?

Campers should bring their own bedding (twin sized bunks), toiletries, clothes, and Bible. All medication must be turned in at check-in to our camp nurse. The medication should be in original containers in a 1 gallon ziploc bag with the camper’s name clearly labeled.

It is very important that campers brings a reusable water bottle.

Youth may want to bring money for snacks and camp merchandise.

Can my child be successful at camp if they have a developmental disability?

Some camps specialize in serving campers with developmental disabilities. Unfortunately we are not one of them. Our staff are not specifically trained in this area. The steep terrain on the camp property can also be difficult to navigate. If a child is interested in attending camp, who may require special accommodations, please contact us before registration. We strongly encourage parents to have a conversation with the Summer Camp Coordinator to see if the individual can have a positive experience, which we will be happy to provide if we can!
