Like a 100% guided family vacation in the great outdoors!
Ages: Any and all! (Call to ask about campers under 8 years old.)
One Week Program
A wilderness adventure for the whole family! Whether your child is nervous about going to camp for the first time, or you're just looking for a great way to bond as a family, Family Camp was made for you.
True to the Wilderness Adventure mission, Family Camp is a full outdoor experience. You will camp and cook all of your meals backpacker style, spend your days hiking and adventuring in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, and end your nights with group discussions under the stars.
The itinerary of this camp can be adjusted to fit the age range and skill set of the group, but you can expect a full introduction to the best that Wilderness Adventure has to offer. During your time at Family Camp you can: push your limits and build group problem solving skills on our high and low ropes elements, watch Mom go screaming down our 900' zip line, and cheer your son or daughter to the top of our climbing wall. Other activities may include backpacking, natural rock climbing, caving, canoeing, outdoor living skills, and a trip to a natural water slide!
No previous experience is required, and this camp is a great introduction to camping and spending time outdoors. This camp is a perfect stepping stone for a camper who is nervous about spending time away from home because in addition to trained and experienced leaders, they'll also have mom/dad/siblings/etc. right there by their side the whole time.
Most gear is provided for the Family Camp trip. We provide backpacking, camping, and activity gear. You need to provide clothes and hygiene items for the trip. If you have your own gear you are welcome to bring what you have. You can check out our Packing List to see what gear or clothes you might need to bring for the trip.
