NC Canoeing Adventure

The NC Canoeing Adventure is an exciting and immersive experience that takes place in the heart of breathtaking Western North Carolina. This incredible course offers a unique opportunity for campers to embark on a memorable 4-day, 3-night canoe expedition on the stunning Fontana Lake, located adjacent to the magnificent Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

During the canoe expedition, campers will not only have the chance to explore the serene beauty of the lake but also learn the value of teamwork as they paddle from one picturesque campsite to another. Each night, as they set up camp on beautiful lake islands, campers will have the perfect setting to reflect on their day’s adventures under the twinkling stars.

But the adventure doesn’t stop there! In addition to the canoe expedition, campers will get to participate in a wide range of thrilling activities. They’ll have the opportunity to test their limits and conquer new heights while rock climbing. They’ll experience the rush of adrenaline as they navigate the exhilarating rapids of the Nantahala River while white water rafting. They’ll challenge themselves and build confidence on SOAR’s high ropes course, and they’ll engage in friendly competition and teamwork as they play archery tag with their newfound friends.

The NC Canoeing Adventure is not just about outdoor activities; it’s about creating lifelong memories, building friendships, and developing important life skills.
