The Appalachian Mountains stretch two thousand miles from Alabama to Maine. The highest peaks are in North Carolina and Tennessee, in the sections known as the Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The North Carolina foothills stand in the space between the tallest ridges on the East Coast and the rolling countryside of the Piedmont.
Within the foothills exist some of the most diverse and rugged terrains in the state. There are several world-class mountain biking systems that utilize the accessibility of the lower elevations, without giving up the hilly descents bikers love. There are hundreds of miles of hiking trails, premier fly fishing, boating, and rock climbing all within the foothills.
If you are searching for a summer camp adventure for your elementary or middle school student, you cannot go wrong with an experience in the foothills. Tekoa Foothills provides the highest quality summer camp experience for families within a short drive of:
Tekoa Foothills offers a progressive overnight camp program that encourages children to participate in age-appropriate activities year after year, allowing them to be physically, cognitively, and spiritually challenged.
Overnight campers pick up similar teachings from these events and their own spiritual journey. Here at Tekoa Foothills, it's simple to spend time studying and pondering on God's creation and to feel Christ's presence throughout the week.
This is a high-energy week packed with extra pool time and a focus on growth via meeting new friends and trying new things, designed to keep campers busy from dawn to evening. Activities for this week include:
Every Foothills camper will be able to swim in the pool, enjoy the epic slip n slide, zipline across the 400' lake, ride canoes and paddleboats, plunge into the lake from the giant inflatable slide, and explore the magical bamboo forest all while being surrounded by their family group's carefully crafted community.
The family group approach will provide Christian discipleship and community to all campers.
Middle school camp takes adventure to the next level. In addition to the discipleship they will experience through the family group model implemented at the elementary age group as well, campers will get a mix of on-site and off-site activity that creates new challenges and opportunities.
In addition to the kayaks, huge slip n' slide, ax throwing, archery, and zipline, campers also get to visit South Mountains State Park and camp beneath the stars, all while remaining within their Family Group community.
