Rafting on the Nantahala River!!!

Our last program of the 2009 camping season just left on Friday, Oct 23rd.  Camp High Rocks hosted ten different middle and upper school programs during its spring and fall LEAP seasons this year.  We host some of the best private and charter schools from throughout the southeast!  School programs this year included:

  • Ravenscroft School, Raleigh, NC, 8th Grade
  • KIPP WAYS Academy, Atlanta, GA, 6th Grade
  • KIPP Believe, New Orleans, LA, 6th Grade
  • Pace Academy, Atlanta, GA, 9th Grade
  • Trinity Prep, Winterpark, FL, 9th Grade
  • Durham Academy, Durham, NC, 10th Grade
  • The Summit School, Winston-Salem, NC, 9th Grade
  • St. Andrews School, Savannah, GA, 12th Grade
  • The O’Neal School, Southern Pines, NC, 7th Grade
  • Ashley Academy, Johnson City, TN, Grades 5-8
  • Tampa Prep, Tampa, FL, 6th Grade

Each school participates in its own custom designed program that focuses on particular goals and outcomes based on our own philosophy and the needs of the school.  Activities include backpacking, rock climbing, canoeing, whitewater rafting, high and low adventure course, stream ecology, and a number of other fun events.  We use our 1100-acre facility along with nearby Pisgah National Forest, and beautiful Dupont State Forest.

 The 2009 season was an amazing group of programs and an incredible staff of caring adults!  We look forward to next spring when we will start it all over again!  For more information about the High Rocks LEAP program, visit
