Registration for this session is no longer available
Tsali Recreation Area, located in the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina, near scenic Nantahala River Gorge and beautiful Lake Fontana, serves as adventure base camp for the week where students camp in tents or ENO hammocks. Each day brings new and exciting immersive adventures as we raft several of the whitewater rivers in the area, including the Nantahala, Nolichucky and the Tuckaseegee, ride miles of exhilarating, lake hugging mountain bike trails that begin just yards from our campsite, fly through the Gorge canopy on a series of tree-top zip lines, paddle the smooth, pristine waters of Lake Fontana in touring kayaks and paddle boards, and hike as Lilliputians through the old-growth hardwoods in the Joyce-Kilmer National Forest. We prepare our own meals in camp with an occasional trip into Bryson City for pizza or a late night ice cream run. Expedition dates are M-F, July 30-August 3. Cost is $615 and covers all outfitter expenses and meals in camp. All adventure gear (for rafting, zip lining and paddling) is provided; participants must bring their own mountain bikes and helmets. Tents and group cook gear is also provided. However, participants must bring their own ENO hammocks (optional), and sleeping bags and pads.The PEAK program has a limited number of sleeping bags and sleeping pads available for loan. Registration for this experience takes place through Heathwood Summer Programs at https://www.heathwood.org/summer.
