This is a wonderful and unique camp with a focus on nurturing the individual spirit and promoting a love and deep respect for nature. My shy, bookish then 9-year old had her first sleep away camp experience at Green River, and it was transformative. She returned the following summer for a longer session, will be returning again for an even longer session, and we are sending another child for her first experience this summer as well. Campers are encouraged to explore nature, develop their interests, have fun, and learn about the environment from creative, nurturing, and knowledgeable counselors and mentors. The level of freedom to be in and learn from the outdoors is unsurpassed during in their lives throughout the rest of the year.

The Green River Preserve is an amazing place for children to grow and learn while experiencing the great outdoors. It is an amazing place to meet new people and see the true beauty of the mountains. They teach children to be themselves. It is truly an amazing place

Green River Preserve is a summer camp in the mountains of North Carolina. Summer camp is the best antidote for the loss of summer learning. It promotes educational enrichment that enhances the development of our children. A recent study by the American Camping Association confirms that summer camp is the single most important factor in youth development next to parenting.
Green River Preserve allows me to be my best me. My experiences at GRP allows me to connect to the natural world, and discover my full potential. Green River has given me confidence. It has inspired me to to preserve and protect the green spaces that are left in our world. As well as share with children how important and wonderful the outdoors are.

I have seen children bloosom into the people that they can be, make new friends, and discover the beauty of nature. Children are able to be themselves and gain self confidence. Also, youth are learning to appreciate the outdoors. GRP is developing the next generation of naturalist.

I would hope that all young people would have the opportunity to experience a summer at Green River Preserve or an organization like this. In school, children engages two senses: seeing and hearing. Camp engages all of a child's senses. An example of this is building a fire: you can touch it, see it, hear it pop, feel its' warmth, cook food to taste it.
