For the first time in many years, Nature Camps will offer the Appalachian Journey program, a 7-day mountain experience for teens in a pristine area of West Virginia. We are partnering with Experience Learning to offer this unique program, which includes hiking, camping, and learning survival skills, in addition to oral histories of rich Appalachian culture and traditions.  Trip leadership and programming will be co-led by Nature Camps Director Don Webb, an experienced Nature Camps Teen Adventure counselor, and Spruce Knob Mountain Center staff.
