Congratulations 2021 5th-Year Campers!

What a summer, SOAR is thrilled to say that we were able to successfully run our summer programs! We had an amazing time in North Carolina, Wyoming, and Florida. A special thank you goes to all of our campers and their families for making this a summer to remember and one for the books!

We want to give a special shout-out to our newest 5th-year campers. This summer we had a total of 9! Becoming a 5th-year camper at SOAR means you are added to our totem pole which is showcased at our Balsam Base in North Carolina. You are also recognized at the first evening campfire with your group, receive a SOAR day-pack, and get a special certificate at the completion of camp. It is a huge accomplishment and we hope these alumni have had just as much fun as we have on these many adventures we’ve shared! THANK YOU to Cheryl, Cymone, Ivan, JJ, Katie, Lucie, Maxine, Maxx, and Rowan for your dedication, commitment, and for having fun with us for 5 summers. We are proud of each and every one of you!
