The NC Twice Exceptional Adventure was designed to meet the special needs of our campers who are both intellectually Gifted and ADHD/LD (otherwise known as 2E students). The core of this course are the educational opportunities that speak to the exceptional nature of the 2E campers. Workshops & field trips include the WNC Nature Center, the Pisgah Wildlife Education Center, the Appalachian Mountain Farm Museum, the Oconaluftee Visitor Center, and more! This course also offers a broader range of adventures than some of our other course options. One highlight is the 4-day backpacking trip in Pisgah National Forest where campers can view firsthand the flora and fauna of our temperate rainforest. Additional activities include mountain biking, rappelling, and caving!
They don’t call it FUNyaking for nothing!
“SOAR provides an opportunity for [campers] to get away from the “easy activities” they seem to gravitate to—video games, computers and TV—and into really life-changing activities that require them to grow as individuals. [My son] came back more focused and mature, and more willing to take responsibility for his self.”
