- $1,399 for two weeks of summer camp $2,500
The summer camp, held June 15–June 29, features a flurry of outdoor and aquatic adventures and activities, including skiing and the blob, a giant inflatable bubble that propels campers high into the air above the water to land with a splash.
Camp Blue Ridge
Arts and crafts. Ultimate Frisbee. Digital photography. Horseback riding. Music lessons in guitar and drums. There's so much to do at Camp Blue Ridge that it's easy for kids to forget the few things they won't be doing, like surfing the Internet or learning economics. In two-week increments, campers ages 7 to 16 design their own curriculum and make the 250-acre facility in the Blue Ridge mountains their own. Whether they want to go canoeing on the two lakes or learn to rock climb in a given week is entirely in their own hands. The camp also offers regular field trips to destinations such as Six Flags Over Georgia and White Water. Featured in the New York Times, Camp Blue Ridge gives young people a taste of grown-up self-determination seasoned with a helping of skateboarding.
