Blue Ridge Hike (ages 12-17)


  • A.R.E. Camp 283 White Rock Furnace Road Rural Retreat, VA, 24368 United States (map)

Click here to register for the Teen Blue Ridge Hike.

Here's your chance to experience a week entirely in nature – sleeping out under the stars, cooking meals over the fire, and seeing an abundance of Appalachian Mountain plant and animal life.

Every teenager (ages 12-17) should experience a week-long hike at least once. On the hike, you will incorporate the ideal of living close to nature with the opportunity to challenge perceived limitations in a close-knit and supportive group.

Each hike is individually tailored to meet the needs and experience level of the participants, and is guided by staff experienced in wilderness outings*. Campers will have the chance to learn wilderness skills, meet both physical and mental challenges, and explore the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains.

*Attendance at Children's Camp One is a pre-requisite for Blue Ridge Hike One, as Campers will participate in planning and team-building activities with their hike leaders and fellow hikers during the session.
