Camp Muddy Sneakers is an exciting day camp in western NC that seeks to educate campers about the natural world through hands-on exploration! The summer camp is a natural outgrowth of Muddy Sneakers’ school year programming. After many years of encouragement from parents, students and community supporters, Camp Muddy Sneakers was founded in 2013 with the vision of nurturing children’s guided discovery of local conserved lands during the beautiful summer months. Through an immersion experience that values exploration, science and forming a deep connection with the natural world, Camp Muddy Sneakers has succeeded in cultivating a day camp unlike any other.
Western NC is an incredibly bio-diverse region with an abundance of public and privately protected lands to explore. These qualities make our local environment an exceptional location to teach outdoors. One of the overarching goals of Camp Muddy Sneakers is to stimulate a love of nature, inspire the joy of living, and help nurture an understanding of the interconnectedness of all things. We look forward to providing your camper a meaningful experience that will enrich the mind, body and soul.
