Nature Adventures is Asheville’s twist on traditional Summer Camp,
framed in themes from nature and based on martial arts principles. 
(For Spring Break Camp, Head Here)

We take pride in being one of Asheville’s most well-rounded camps!  Whether at Summer Camp or Spring Break Camp, kids thrive in a supportive environment that challenges and nourishes them to:

  • Grow their connection with the natural world
  • Integrate awesome movement skills that improve spatial awareness, coordination and balance
  • Learn invaluable life lessons about safety, healthy living, and character building.


Nature Adventures is a traditional summer day camp for active nature lovers!  Imagine spending each day on pristine mountain land with your friends, living out a new adventure each week that combines nature education and martial arts. Camp for 2020 will be held on beautiful farmland, just about 15 minutes west of downtown Asheville.

Your child will be welcomed into a crew of awesome kids, improve in movement skills, self-confidence, inner discipline, and learn valuable lessons about the natural world around us.  Each week, we jump into real-life, experiential Nature Education Adventures and super fun, imaginative Martial Arts Lessons. Each type of adventure is led by qualified counselors who love being active and outdoors as much as the kids! 

We begin our days with a fun and lively circle, singing camp songs and playing movement games to warm up for an action-packed day. Then we head to the woods or fields for a safe and educational adventure!  After lunch, it’s time for rest and free play in the creek or in the shade of the pine forest. In the afternoons, our counselors also lead us in afternoon classes in their areas of expertise including Ninjutsu, Gymnastics, Yoga, Gardening, and Herbal Medicine.


One of the best things about our camp is the extraordinary family feel that gives students a sense of belonging to something greater than themselves.

Because we frame our camp with the martial arts code, our campers have a deep respect for each other and their own place in the group.

Nature Adventures Summer Camp brings together the best of summer through play, discovery, friendship and fun!


Campers will be divided into groups by age for many activities but also come together as a group for some activities.  Campers must be within the grade requirements to attend camp.

MONDAY-FRIDAY, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Camp meets daily at the beautiful land at Green Heron Pond, just west of downtown.
