Blue Ridge Hike, One
(ages 12-16)
July 22 - 29, 2017
Every teenager should experience a week-long hike!
July 22, 2017 - July 29, 2017
Rural Retreat , VA

Here's your chance to experience a week entirely in nature – sleeping out under the stars, cooking meals over the fire, and seeing an abundance of Appalachian Mountain plant and animal life.

Every teenager (ages 12-16) should experience a week-long hike at least once. On the hike, you will incorporate the ideal of living close to nature with the opportunity to challenge perceived limitations in a close-knit and supportive group.

Each hike is individually tailored to meet the needs and experience level of the participants, and is guided by staff experienced in wilderness outings. Campers will have the chance to learn wilderness skills, meet both physical and mental challenges, and explore the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains.

Registration information coming soon!
