Base Camp (Ages 11-16)

Rockmont offers two Base Camp experiences, each with a unique focus.

Base Camp 1 (May 31-June 19) begins with a unique, 4 night expedition into the wilderness where camp is set at a place such as Pisgah National Forest at Cove Creek and the Davidson River, or the Black Mountain Campground and the South Toe River. From this outpost, campers will explore the surrounding area, tackle adventurous activities, and tap into the relaxed pace and natural rhythm that is only found in such timeless and wild locations. 

Activities on the Base Camp 1 campout will include Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing, Fly Fishing, Hiking, and more!

During the next 16 days of Base Camp, campers participate in all the classic elements of camp including skills (such as blacksmithing, Appalachian Arts, kayaking, basketball, archery, riflery, and homesteading), Tribal Activities, and classic Rockmont campouts.

Base Camp 2: Expeditions (July 19-Aug 7) is a new experience that will take place at the end of Summer 2020! Campers will get to experience a Classic, 2 week session and then jump right into a different paced week of adventure. During the final week of Base Camp Expeditions, campers will enjoy a new adventurous trip every single day: rafting, waterskiing, zip-lining; all based out of their Rockmont home. When back at camp, they’ll enjoy the fellowship, fun, and the full expanse of Rockmont’s acreage!
