Mountain Roots will be launching their first summer of Discovery Camp over the week of July 4.

This new offering is a travelling summer camp experience - where campers get to discover somewhere and something new in the Brevard area every day of the week. These adventures range from a farm day at Just Ripe Farm, community-based programs at Dunn's Rock Community Center, family fun on July 4 near downtown Brevard, art adventures at the Art Lab, and a forest discovery day at Holmes Educational State Forest.

More information on Discovery Camp is available at

This summer, Mountain Roots is also growing their Roots Crew program (counselors in training) for rising seventh - ninth graders. Roots Crew members serve as counselors in training as they assist with the various camp activities. Roots Crew members assist with games, theme activities, preparing snack, spending time with kids that need a little extra attention, etc. Mountain Roots values this Roots Crew experience and hopes that these experiences will offer real-life experiences in helping younger campers while simultaneously developing leadership and enjoying the various camp activities throughout the week / summer.

For those families that are mapping out summer plans, Mountain Roots Day Camp may be a great fit for your child(ren) - whether on Roots Crew, as a day camper, or even as a preschool camper getting their feet wet with the camp experience alongside other 4 and 5 year olds. Each week is different from the week before so families that need quality child-centered options all summer may enroll for all 7 weeks.
