Adventures on the Parkway:

BRCM Adventure on the Parkway is a day camp for children ages 5-8 that is located on the historic and beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. The camp provides an exciting, fun, and enriching outdoor experience to create lifelong outdoor lovers.

BRCM Adventure on the Parkway provides a mix of outdoor exploring and hiking, crafts and games, learning about animal and plant life, experiencing the history and culture of the parkway through old fashioned toys, games, and music with live musicians, and even working on the farm. Each day is filled with new experiences and opportunities to form a deeper understanding of and connection with nature while creating lasting camp memories and friendships.

Little GROWers:

Join us for an exciting week of summer camp at the Project GROWS farm as we experience the journey of a vegetable from farm to table! Little GROWers will work together to make delicious snacks from vegetables they harvest themselves, taste-test a variety of produce, and spend time tending the garden. We’ll also go on scavenger hunts and play games to explore the many colors of the farm. Learn about our amazing pollinator friends like bees that make farming possible, the mystery of soil and compost, and the benefits of farm animals like chickens. With help from camp staff, Little GROWers will complete a Five Day Challenge to prepare and eat a healthy snack every day themselves. Campers will leave with recipes, gardening and food preparation skills, and an appreciation of where our food comes from!
