Adventure on your own terms.

The Summit: where adventure comes naturally

Family fun awaits! A vacation to our unique getaway is something that your family will remember forever. From our scenic hikes, variety of lodging options, and exciting outdoor activities, we have something for everyone. Family Adventure Camp at the Summit is in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia, next to the New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. Discover why so many people call this land “Almost Heaven,” with its breathtaking natural beauty, abundant ecosystems, and many activities. When you choose to have an adventure with us, you will be greeted every morning with a breath of fresh mountain air. Be warned, your family will want to keep coming back!

Open to ALL Families; no BSA or Scouting affiliation required!
