NC Classic Adventure


11-18 years


11 days



The NC Classic Adventure is considered to be SOAR’s original course! During this camp, the highlight is a 4-day, 3-night backpacking trip through Pisgah National Forest. Although backpacking is one of the most strenuous activities we offer, it is also one of the most rewarding! Campers will choose their route, acquire map and compass skills and learn the importance of organization and carrying just the essentials. After full days of hiking, campers will reflect over a campfire about the exhilaration that comes from hard work, perseverance, “unplugging” and tuning into nature and all its wonder.

Considered SOAR’s “classic” adventure course, our NC Classic is chock full of the classic array of outdoor adventure activities!

“I have found the training of the staff is absolutely critical. That is why I wanted to see if my son would be successful at SOAR versus a “mainstream” camp. He had not been successful at the other overnight camps due in part with the staff not being appropriately trained on how to manage ADHD-like behaviors. With the intensity of the SOAR camp, coupled with outstanding staff, he had a successful experience – allowing him to bring home and implement what he learned at camp.”
