    Come along for a 5 day adventure in the North Carolina Smoky Mountains. We will be escaping the hot summer temperatures to head for the high country and enjoying fun activities like whitewater rafting, extreme zip lining, trout fishing, tubing, hiking, paintball, and so much more. 

    After wearing ourselves out each day we will come together around the campfire for a time of devotion and diving into what God has for each of us on this fun week in his creation.

    Our amenities include nice bunk houses with air conditioning, bathrooms, and a nice area to prepare our meals and eat together. We will also be enjoying an onsite paintball course, trout fishing, and clay target shooting.
