Mountain Roots Offering Summer Camps – Brevard NC


Last updated 7/25/2016 at 6:24pm

Mountain Roots will be offering day camps Aug. 8-12 and Aug. 15-19.

The sound of kids laughing, playing, and running outside; the community of campers working together on a common project; youth gardening to give back to those who are hungry; creativity being expressed through art and story - these are all daily occurrences at Mountain Roots Camps this summer.

As a local educational nonprofit, Mountain Roots' programs have grown exponentially this year with the addition of regular outdoor education programs in several schools, and the expansion of Mountain Roots Day Camp (and Pottery Camp) in order to serve hundreds of Transylvania County's young people this summer (not to mention lots of visiting youth).

Mountain Roots allows for a safe environment for campers to make connections - connections with kids in their community; connections with a better understanding of themselves - their gifts, talents, and interests; and a connection to the natural world where a sense of place and compassion for the environment around us grow with each new day. These Brevard camps provide opportunities for one or multiple weeks of active fun.

The Mountain Roots crew has four weeks of 2016 camps under their belts and are looking forward to two weeks of Mountain Roots Day Camp Aug. 8-12 and Aug. 15-19.

Mountain Roots programs are intentional about engaging campers through discovery and adventure learning experiences in a culture that is so screen-focused. The day-long break from technology and outside play and exploration creates an environment where anyone and everyone can and will thrive.
