Out of Camp Trips
For many campers, our out-of-camp trips are the highlight of their Cheerio
experience. Since the Blue Ridge Mountains and many other points of interest are all within a
short distance to camp, our campers take advantage of these exciting day excursions. The Cheerio
trips listed do cost an additional fee.
Canoeing on the New River
campers 10 years of age and older, this is a chance to set out on a real, outdoor adventure. The Virginia
section of the New River, ironically the oldest river in North America, is the site for our most popular
day trip. Enjoy a day on the water witnessing some of our country's most scenic areas.
Cheerio charters a tour bus, leaving camp early in the morning, to travel to
one of the South's premiere, well-known theme parks near Charlotte, N.C. Campers have lunch at
the park and explore the many thrilling rides, roller coasters and entertainment areas offered
at Carowinds. For safety, campers break up into small groups on this trip with one counselor
accompanying each group.
Caving and Climbing Trips
our experienced Adventure Camp staff during the two week session, these trips provide campers the
opportunity to explore and test themselves in the out-of-doors. Nearby caves and rock climbing sites
are used for these exciting excursions. Campers must be 10 or older to participate in the Caving and Climbing Trips.
