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.
