Every summer, campers come to Camp Hannon to push the limits of a raft, a rope, and their own strength. Through challenging outdoor activites, we form a bond of friendship that is not easily broken.

A Mountaintop Experience

For the bravest explorers and outdoor enthusiasts, Adventure Summer Camp offers six-day Excursions in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North and South Carolina.

Campers often leave saying they've never experienced anything like the outdoor spirit of camp. We offer an opportunity to unplug from the normal things of life – iPads and XBOX and restaurants – and spend a week experiencing the river, the lake, the mountain trails and the rock.

Whether you've been camping your whole life, or tend to stay indoors, Adventure Summer Camp will push your limits. But don't worry, the counselors are ready to help make sure it's a fun and safe time for each participant.

This camp was "the best time of his life." He has enjoyed other camps and experiences but I don't think anything compares with the true outdoor adventure spirit of this camp!

Ryan Came back from camp with some amazing story. He talked about all the wonderful things that he was able to do and the friends that he made. He has already asked to return to the same camp and during the same week next year.
