Field CampBlue Ridge Swim Club

 

Field Camp has been held at Blue Ridge Swim Club since the summer of 2012.

The Field Camp program emphasizes outdoors education and recreation. Our weeks are largely oriented around field trips, most of which take us to National Parks or similar outdoors destinations. We load up the bus twice weekly, and go into the field, often hiking at places such as Rip Rap Run, White Oak Canyon, Old Rag Mountain, or the Moormans River.

We anticipate these trips by discussing the activity and site and we regularly review our experiences in the field. Our Thursday field trips end at either Blue Ridge Swim Club or at Camp Albemarle in Free Union, where we stay for an overnight which includes swimming, read-aloud stories, a campfire, and group songs. We also regularly give attention to our behavior, asking that all follow the Field Camp motto, to "be safe, do good, have fun, help out."
