Hey, Summer Campers!
We talk enough about ourselves here on the Everything Summer Camp Blog, it’s good to give someone else a turn once in a while. That’s why we turn our spotlight to awesome brand names that we offer as well as celebrities who are also former summer campers. And we like to talk up the camps with whom we’ve formed excellent working relationships.
Camp Rockmont is a shining example of one of these camps. Located 15 miles east of Asheville, North Carolina, Rockmont boasts 550 acres that are surrounded by thousands of acres of National Forest wilderness. Near the town Black Mountain, Rockmont shows kids a beautiful mountainous landscape covered in foliage and home to the 20-acre Lake Eden.
Every year since 1956, Rockmont Christian summer camp has been the summer home to 1500 boys from all across the globe. The original lodging was built in the 1800s by the famous-for-his-time, developer E.W. Grove—made for use as a family retreat. In the 1930s, the land along with the historical property was sold to Black Mountain College. But the creative college closed in 1956 and became the site for Camp Rockmont.
At Camp Rockmont, campers are given the chance to achieve a certain skill level in tons of different activities such as Archery, Basketball, Capture-the-Flag, Soccer, Tennis, Horseback Riding, Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing, Riflery, Outdoor Skills, Campouts, Fishing, Talent Shows, Relay Races, Canoeing, Sailing, Swim Sports, Rocketry, Photography, Guitar, Ceramics, Bible Study, and such a great deal more.

But much more than just gorgeous property and a million fun things to do, Camp Rockmont guides its campers to focus specifically on physical, emotional, social, and spiritual growth.
