With their jagged ridges, multicolored faces, and thousands of holds affixed seemingly at random, the rock walls at each of Stone Summit's locations look like cubist installations large enough to fill a small warehouse. Follow any series of holds up to the top of these expressionist monuments, though, and scores of individual routes emerge, offering challenges for everyone from entry-level beginners to the most seasoned scaler. Climbers can seek out the tops of routes as high as 60 feet off the facility floor, and bouldering enthusiasts have an entire room filled with near-horizontal overhangs and brain-teasing bouldering problems perfect for studying for the rock-climbing portion of the SAT. Each facility complements its climbing focus with a range of non-climbing exercise opportunities, including treadmills, weight machines, and yoga classes.

Every trip leader at Appalachian Wilderness Guides feels a strong connection to the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. In fact, many of them have thru-hiked all 2,185 of its miles—but that's just the beginning of their qualifications. All of them have trained in wilderness first aid, have certification in "Leave No Trace Outdoors Ethics," and have never scolded a woodpecker for its annoying laugh. With these and other skills, they lead expeditions such as beginner day hikes throughout the mountains, multi-day camping trips, and wine-tasting treks throughout Georgia vineyards. Appalachian Wilderness Guides also runs a hostel for overnight guests as well as an Appalachian Trail school.
A group of Navy SEALs designed the BattleFrog Race Series. This trio of obstacle courses—8K, 1-mile, and 400-meter—challenges bodies and minds with scenarios similar to what SEALs face in their training sessions. Each course has a different number of obstacles. Participants climb nets and slosh through mud, all while building teamwork and testing their endurance. The events also feature bounce houses for kids and exhibits along with food and music.
Spurred by a desire to connect with other adventurers sharing his passion for exploring wilderness territory, Reginald Mitchell began leading hiking trips throughout Georgia and the Southeast. Though he regularly helms mountain-climbing excursions on local slopes such as Kennesaw Mountain and Amicalola Falls, he's also traversed mountains in areas as disparate as Tennessee, California, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. Sandwiches and trail mix fuel hikers on most tours as they enjoy hiking's numerous health benefits, such as weight loss, endurance building, and stress relief.

Little scientists get a head start on developing useful STEM skills with summer camps full of model building, moviemaking, and robotics, or they hone nascent novel-writing skills with creative-writing exercises.
