Camp High Rocks sits at an elevation of 3000 feet in the midst of 1100 acres of camp-owned mountain woodland, with an 11 acre lake, and miles of hiking and biking trails. Our programs include a summer camp for boys and LEAP adventure programs for schools.
Summer Camp: Founded in 1958, High Rocks remains dedicated to providing a caring, challenging, and noncompetitive outdoor experience for boys. Campers come from all over the southeastern United States; many return year after year for the wide range of activities offered and for the supportive environment they find here.
The strength of High Rocks lies in its staff: in each counselor’s unique talents and personality, and in an expression of these through the combined effort of the staff working together. We are looking for a team of caring people who will share thoughts with each other, try new approaches, support one another, and who are willing to be creative, energetic, responsible, and patient as they lead by example.
Our program offers instruction that caters to each camper’s individual level. Campers choose their activities and progress at their own pace. Counselors provide basic and advanced instruction in one or several of our 14 activity areas:
Our LEAP School Group program embraces the same philosophy to provide your group with an enjoyable and meaningful experience. Trying new things, trusting one another and working through difficult situations as a team, can help students develop confidence, good decision-making skills and a sense of social responsibility.
By freeing the students from the walls of a traditional classroom we can work with your students and integrate current curriculum and subject matter that will enhance their learning through experiential methods.
We host a number of private schools throughout the Southeast every spring and fall. Some schools include: Ravesncroft School, KIPP WAYS, KIPP Believe, Pace Academy, Trinity Prep, The Webb School, Durham Academy, The McCallie School, The Altamont School, Tampa Prep and The Summit School.
