About the Company

Camp Appalachia is a yearlong camp whose target camper is a child between the ages of 7 and 17 and is at a high risk for destructive life choices. We will be providing a little to no cost resident camp experience to kids who are directly affected by the opioid epidemic, kids in the foster care system, and kids who have one or more parents incarcerated. We currently have a summer day camp, but we are in the process of bringing our ten residential cabins up to code so that we can be a resident camp as well. We operate 12 months per year with our focus being opioid prevention, outdoor education, leadership, and resiliency building.
