Haw River Camps
HRA partners with Haw River Canoe and Kayak to offer adventure camps for 8-12 year old participants.
Adventure camps are designed to engage campers with the outdoors through different land and water based activities. Campers hike different sections of trails along the river throughout the week, learn about the Haw River – the aquatic life, water quality and more. Each week is full of opportunities for discovery that will enable each camper to connect with the river, with nature, and instill a sense of stewardship through engaging adventures. We are going to have an incredible two weeks and we can’t wait to see you there!
Adventure Camps are from 9:00AM to 4:00PM five days a week.
