Welcome to our camp.

Green River Preserve is a non-competitive, coed summer camp connecting children with nature. Located on a 3,400 acre private wildlife preserve in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, this extraordinary natural setting inspires campers to have a greater understanding of themselves, their environment, and each other. Designed for bright, curious, and creative children, our program nurtures character development and fosters skills like perseverance, curiosity, communication, optimism, creativity, and GRIT.

Green River Preserve is a safe and comfortable place, both physically and emotionally. Purposefully small, our enrollment is limited to 112 campers per session. Green River Preserve offers 1,2, and 3 week summer camp sessions for campers in the rising 1st through 9th grades and high school expedition programs for rising 9th graders through college freshmen.

Our Respect and Inclusivity Pledge

At Green River Preserve, we are bound by and invested in a culture of respect - respect for ourselves, respect for the environment, and respect for each other. The bond of respect compels us to continually reflect on how we can honor the dignity and value of all people. While there is an ever-marching journey ahead, we are committed to cultivating spaces that are welcoming, equitable, and inclusive for all.

I learned that you should always be you and that GRP is the best camp ever!
