The one-day trip to Lake James has long been one of camp’s most popular optional trips. All levels of watersports enthusiasts are welcome to participate. Our trained and experienced staff knows how to coach, encourage, and promote fun in a safe environment for beginners wanting to learn to ski, kneeboard, or wake board to seasoned veterans alike.
Whitewater Raft Trip
Discover the excitement of whitewater, the grandeur of forested mountain bluffs, the tranquility of isolated pools, and the constantly varying currents of a mountain stream. This one-day trip offers a thrilling ride down some of Appalachia’s most scenic and exciting rivers. Participants will talk about this one for a long time to come!
Mountain Biking Trip
Western North Carolina is home to some of the best mountain biking in the country. The experience of cruising down single-track trails through tunnels of lush rhododendron is not soon forgotten. Our one-day trip includes personalized instruction and is open to riders of all levels.
Rock Climbing Trip
Climbing provides a great opportunity to build confidence and learn perseverance. Our ‘pilgrims of the vertical’ master the fundamentals before reaching new heights on rock walls in Western North Carolina.
Horseback Trail Ride
Following a 45 – 60 minute lesson, campers enjoy a two-hour trail ride across Rockmont’s exciting variety of terrain. Each ride will then conclude with our quarter-master preparing a meal in the style of the “old west”. The advanced trail ride is for campers who are ready for more saddle time and a further adventure up the mountain. Our riding instructors will test and approve campers who are ready for this challenge. Pack long pants and a pair of heeled, closed-toe shoes or boots for safety.
