Summer camps hold a cherished spot in our memories as a special place filled with new adventures, lessons about nature, and newly developing life skills that we still carry with us today. We are proud to say that Western North Carolina is home to some of the finest summer camps in the country, with long traditions of excellence. Today's campers will still find the activities that made summer camps so much fun for their parents; theme days, cabin skits, canoeing, swimming, and hiking.
Many camps now offer even more activities like zip-lining, yoga, and, gymnastics. Camps around the area are also embracing sustainable practices to ensure that their beautiful mountain properties will be there for generations to come. While the majority of camps are “electronics-free” zones, many have active blogs where parents can read updates about their campers while they are away.
A few of the boys, girls, and co-ed camps that near Preserve at Rock Creek are Merrie-Woode, Illahee, Kahdalea & Chosatonga, Keystone, Pisgah, Rockbrook, Carolina, High Rocks, Eagles Nest, Pinnacle, and Ridge Haven. For a comprehensive list of summer camps visit the North Carolina Youth Camp Association website. While you’re in the area dropping off or picking up campers, come visit us at Preserve at Rock Creek.
