Discovery Camp for Senior Adults

Over the years, we have a number of adults who have commented, “Why do kids get to have all the fun? Why don’t you have camp for adults too?” We have scheduled a four-day and three-night camp that will include a variety of camp activities, plus some special programs geared toward adults. All of the activities will be optional so that you can take advantage of as much “camp life” as you want, or just take some time to read, relax, and nap in the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.


All of these activities are in addition to the opportunity to take on the physical and mental challenges of the high ropes course, some team initiatives to test your problem-solving and cooperative skills. This time away at camp will be fun and relaxing. We encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors! This program is open to anyone who is around 50 years of age or older.
