RANGER Sessions (7 days) Age 9 NEW
The Rangers is our new 9-year old program that is the perfect adventure for younger campers.
The Rangers will stay at camp, learn new skills, and will have a great time creating friendships through fun group games and on-site activities!
Each day campers will learn outdoor skills, such as fire building, shelter building, and orienteering.
They will then have the opportunity to use these new skills during a backpacking adventure on our property!
During the week we will have camp all to ourselves, and will get to experience all the on-site activities, such as GaGa Ball, Human Foosball, Speleo Box (indoor maze), mud slide, and swimming and playing in the New River!
There will be plenty of time for big group field games, such as Castle ball, Kickball, Captains Coming, and more!
The week ends with an all day off-site excursion. 2017 Dates and Rates

Trekkers (14 days) Ages 12-14
This is the first step in the progression of the two week sessions. This trip is based on our original two week trip which started in 1982. This trip is divided into three
mini-expeditions: backpacking/rock climbing; canoeing/rafting/caving; and mountain biking. During each of these mini trips the group will pedal, hike, or paddle
to their campsite and camp for the night. Between each section participants return to the New River Outdoor Center (NROC) to rest, playgames, pack and prepare for the next
section of their trip. 2017 Dates and Rates
Seekers (14 days) Ages 13-15
Seekers is the second step in the two week sessions, even more challenging than the Trekkers. Campers stay out in the field for longer periods, climb more challenging routes,
paddle for several days on rivers, crawl through wild caves and take on more responsibility for the welfare of the group. The program will be spent backpacking in Pisgah National
Forest, climbing rocks with great views, canoeing and kayaking the New River, rafting in WV, caving in TN and mountain biking in the mountains of NC and VA.
