NC Twice Exceptional (2E)

Ages 12 – 15, 15 Days

Cost: $4,400

NC Twice Exceptional Highlights:

  • This 15-day course 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!
  • Adventures abound during the 4-day backpacking trip in Pisgah National Forest where campers can view firsthand the flora and fauna of our temperate rainforest.
  • 2E campers then experience the fun of mountain biking through Dupont State Recreational Park, site of filming of the Hunger Games!
  • Can you say views?? 2E campers will enjoy the beauty & wonder of granite and quartz cliffs as they scale to new heights on Looking Glass Rock.
  • Our 2E campers (stalag-)mite have the most fun of all as they hold (stalag-) tite to the slippery, slidey walls of Worley’s Cave in TN!
  • They don’t call it FUNyaking for nothing!  2E campers work together in double funyaks to navigate the Class 2 rapids of the Tuckaseegee River, home to mountain trout and famous hellbender salamanders!
  • Then, let’s amp up the volume on the Class 2-3 whitewater rafting of the Nantahala River, one of the most popular rafting rivers in NC!
  • The Whitewater Triple Threat culminates on the Ocoee River, site of the 1996 Olympic Whitewater competitions and home to prime Class 3-4 water.
  • Let’s wrap it up in Cherokee National Forest, with rappelling & rock climbing at Starr Mountain and a “beach day” on the sandy shores of Parksville Lake.

My Camp Experience

“One of the most meaningful things for my son was interacting with peers who accept him. Being around kids who have many of the same challenges he does was very powerful for him.”
