Adventure Guides

April 27 – 29, 2018

October 5 – 7, 2018

Trailblazer Weekend is September 28-30, 2018

Adventure is waiting…high atop the Blue Ridge Mountains.

YMCA Camp Greenville is a proud host of the Adventure Guides Packout.  The YMCA of Greenville Adventure Guide program develops strong bonds between parents and children which support self-esteem and communication skills, setting the foundation for positive lifelong relationships. A weekend retreat at Camp Greenville is one of the many ways that this program fosters strong relationships. We’d love to have you experience “magic on the mountain.”

Dads, this weekend, set aside time to be with your children, to relish in the freedom, joy, and power of play. Those moments of quality time together will build a lifetime of trust and connection. Camp Greenville’s 1,400 acres are a natural playground that brings out the adventurous spirits in us all. While here, you’re free to explore! Programming will include all of our traditional camp favorites: hiking, climbing, canoeing, sports and games, arts and crafts, stargazing, and telling stories by the fire.
