GET OUT AND ADVENTURE!

Blue Ridge Backcountry is a wilderness-based youth program designed to foster growth in middle and high school students through challenging outdoor activities. Small groups of up to 8 kids will embark on a 3-night excursion within our vast Blue Ridge property. Our staff are trained, certified and knowledgeable in leading wilderness trips and in social and emotional youth development.
