Black Mountain Expeditions is quite a versatile organization! Obviously, it is great at leading kids through the wilderness and providing that unique experience. But it has also begun working with schools here on camp to provide some wonderful team building, service oriented, skill development in a camp setting rather than out on the trail. So far this year we have hosted two excellent Asheville area schools, Carolina Day School and Veritas Christian Academy.
During this time the school’s faculty works with BME director, Ryan Carlson, to give these students a true camp experience. They do team building exercises, learn archery, climbing, play battleball, etc. (the Sultan of fun even showed up one evening to lead Sock War!). But then they have integrated in their own curriculum that supports what they have been learning back at school. Needless to say, this is pretty cool stuff.
If you are ever interested in having your school come to camp for this sort of thing please have someone from your school give Ryan a call. We would love to work with you!
