Explore WNC at Camp Wild!

UPDATE: Camp Wild Middle School is full but we are still taking applications for High School!

The Soil and Water Conservation District's Camp Wild is back for 2017, and will feature a week of fun activities for anyone ages 6th-12th grade. It's a five day long summer camp (with one overnight campout) focused on having fun while learning in the wild outdoors. Participants will explore some of the local sights and attractions of WNC while learning how to conserve, protect, respect, and enjoy the wilderness. Activities include a trip to the Biltmore Estate, a picnic at Sliding Rock, a hike at  the Apalachian Highlands Learning Center, and more! The Camp Wild week for high schoolers is August 7-11th.
