High School Students — attend a summer camp that goes beyond most summer schools. Featuring week-long wilderness camps covering Hiking, Bouldering & Kayaking.
The E&H Summer Adventure Program extends its popular outdoor experiences to high school students, running camps from June 11 through July 1st, 2017. The Program places emphasis on group awareness and cooperation, so you will face the challenges of the backcountry with the support of a non-competitive, friendly group. Because we keep camp sizes small with a low student-to-instructor ratio, you'll receive personalized guidance and instruction every step of the way.
First, we'll cover the basics and then we'll explore the wild and wonderful Blue Ridge Mountains of the Southeast, predominantly in the southwestern Virginia(SW VA) area. Ultimately, you will experience the freedom and wonder of the beautiful and ancient Appalachian Mountains — all while building backcountry expertise, self-confidence, and new friendships.
