Hey, Camp Fans!
Entering into the new year means we have a fresh set of summer camps from around the country who deserve our praises. It’s our pleasure here at Everything Summer Camp to spread the word about some of the fantastic places where you might just end up sending your summer camper this for camp this year. Let’s swing our spotlight over to Western North Carolina where we’ll find Green River Preserve!
Set on 3,400 acres of a beautiful wildlife Preserve in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, Green River Preserve is a summer camp where kids are encouraged to discover a deeper understanding of themselves, their environment, and their communities.
Green River Preserve presents young people activities and skill sets such as Yoga, Woodburning, Theater, Tae Kwon Do, Pottery, Arts and Crafts, Outdoor Skills, Mountain Biking, Ropes Course, Knitting, Fly Fishing, Field Games, Fencing, Music, Drawing and Painting, Dance, Creative Writing, Climbing Tower, Canoeing, BB Skeet, Archery, and more.
The campgrounds provide open fields alongside freshwater springs, vast forested areas, a fishing pond, swimming hole, multiple waterfalls, and the headwaters of the Green River. And the gorgeous natural elements are met with complimentary facilities like the main lodge and dining hall, the infirmary, a craft hut, cordwood cottage, and the staff lodge.
Green River Preserve also boasts two spring-fed ponds, large playing fields, a stream-side pavilion, organic gardens, an apple orchard, as well as a climbing tower built custom for the camp.
The cabins are tucked a bit into the woods where campers live in groups of up to six along with their respective counselors. The campers sleep on bunk beds. Each cabin is a set of two living groups that are joined by a central bathroom.
