American Camping Association
Is our accrediting agency and provides over three hundred standards that set our industry apart in the realm of safety, efficiency, and serious fun! Find out more about this wonderful organization at ACA website.
If you drive your child to camp, stay a while and enjoy all that Black Mountain, Montreat, and Asheville have to offer. Greybeard Realty offers vacation rentals and mountain getaways for camp families. Director Dan’s wife, Annie, is also an agent there so if you are thinking about making the Asheville area your home (or home away from home) then make sure to get in touch with her. GreyBeard Realty is also a full-service real estate company, with in-depth knowledge of Black Mountain real estate. They have a lot of camp
American Canoe Association
Whether you are looking for a great place to canoe/kayak, or simply looking to improve your skills by becoming an ACA certified instructor, the fine folks at the American Canoe Association can vastly improve and increase your time on river! Our staff are also trained to this standard for canoeing, kayaking, and river rescue.
We do a lot of rafting here at camp! If you are in the area with the family and want a super fun activity to do together then I recommend contacting Wildwater. These folks are great and will take care of your rafting needs. We raft the Pigeon, but they have four other river options for you to choose from.
Biblio, online bookseller
Asheville is home to one of the largest online booksellers in the country, Biblio, and they are staunch defenders of the local bookstore. We like that. We also like that they offer some great prices for saving on textbooks, from elementary school all the way through college. Just think of all the time I could have saved waiting in bookstore lines if they had been around 20 years ago! Used Textbooks at Biblio. We like them.
American Mountain Guides Association
AMGA is becoming the standard setting association for climbing. Our director, Adam Boyd, is an AMGA certified instructor and we train our staff according to this standard. Find out more about this wonderful organization at the AMGA web site.
