Classic Adventure Camp
Summer Camp is what Holston Camp does best. After all, we have been hosting campers for 60 years. CLASSIC ADVENTURE CAMP represents the best of small group camping: making friends, learning about God, and having fun.
Campers are encouraged to work, play, and worship as a community of faith, practicing compassion and awareness of each other, the environment, and themselves. Trained and experienced counselors lead campers through traditional, age-appropriate activities such as swimming, canoeing, rock climbing, zip-lines, arts and crafts, bicycling, and field games. Of course, we will gather around the camp fire at night to sing songs and tell stories.
Morning worship and evening vespers are led by an ordained minister or church elder. Campers are encouraged to think seriously about how we relate to others, the environment, and to God. We discuss the teachings and examples provided by Jesus as a model for our own lives.
Unless otherwise noted, Venture campers stay in Main Camp in comfortable cabins with shared bathroom facilities. Guys and girls live in separate cabin groups. Each cabin sleeps 16 in cozy bunks. Campers are constantly supervised by at least 2 adult counselors. Most meals for Ventures are at the dining hall. Bring a sleeping bag and pillow.
Off-campus activities include a trip to nearby Grandfather Mountain and to upper or lower creek in the Pisgah National Forest.
