Make your travel plans early

Brevard is a small town just a little southeast of Asheville, NC.  It is located in Transylvania County, often described as “the land of waterfalls”.  Over 50% of the land in Transylvania county is publicly owned and protected, making it an outdoor tourist destination.  Western North Carolina is a mecca for summer camps.  Transylvania County alone is home to more than a dozen.  All this to say, the summer is a very busy time for our small town so if you plan to stay overnight, it is a good idea to make reservations early.

“Because of camp, I’ve gotten to know people from all over the country – actually, all over the world. Camp is a place where I can escape all of the stereotypes and cliques and just be myself.”
