AAC'S Summer Camp is held in the mountains of North Carolina (Bryson City) for 5 days during the 2nd week in July - lodging is at the beautiful Nantahala Outdoor Center.
Campers range in age from 8-17 and the camper to counselor ratio is 2:1. Campers and volunteers have come from the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast area. Summer Camp can support up to 38 campers. Each year over 50% of the participants return to camp.
Financial support for the camp is provided through two sources: fundraising - contributions of time/materials from volunteer leadership, counselors, and supporters. Our camp also relies heavily on donations from individuals and businesses.
During that week, we participate in:
White water rafting
20 foot/40 foot ropes courses
Adaptive water skiing
