Review for Green River Preserve, Cedar Mountain, NC, USA
Green River Preserve is an amazing summer camp focused on teaching young people the value of an integrated, experiential life. They combine good environmental stewardship with active learning skiils, and through it all they have fun.

There are no cliques or clubs -- the kids learn to respect and honor each person, no matter how different than themselves. And they learn this from the modeling offered by the camp's leaders, Missy and Sandy Schenck.
