Two Popular NC Sleep-Away Camps Pivot to Something New this Summer

Most of the sleep away camps in the NC mountains have elected to cancel for Summer 2020, although a few local faves remain open, like the YMCA’s Camp Harrison and Chattanooga’s popular McCallie Sports Camps, although it (McC) is waitlist only.

Two popular boys camps have pivoted to something that may interest you and your fam, though ~ certainly caught our eye. Camp High Rocks and Falling Creek Camp have changed their summer plans to accommodate us in a different way.

Family Camp at High Rocks near Brevard NC

Bring the whole family and enjoy 1,000 acres of private land, cooler temperatures, and an 11-acre private lake. Read all about it HERE.

While this is not summer camp and will look different, we invite you to join us as we create a space for our camp families and alumni to gather, socially distanced, at camp this summer.

Families have the opportunity to book individual cabin buildings.  Attendance will be limited to 15 families per week.

Expeditions are Sunday through Friday, and will begin and end at Falling Creek Camp.
