This year we will again be traveling to Panthertown Valley, in the Nantahala National Forest, on the eastern continental divide in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Known as the “Yosemite of the East”, this beautiful area contains deep gorges, granite rock domes and cliffs, tranquil creeks, and spectacular waterfalls, all within short hikes of one another. In addition, Panthertown is home to deer, fox, squirrel, raccoon, skunk, barred owl, grouse, wild turkey, coyote, black bear, and bobcat.
During the day we will explore the many sights and activities that this wonderful area has to offer. In the evening we will return to our base-camp for dinner and a time of prayer, bible study, sharing, and praise.
Space is limited, so sign up now. Once you register we will send you a checklist of what you should and should not bring.
The Teen Adventure Trip is not for everyone. This trip is strenuous. Participants should be in good shape, and willing to spend the week camping in the woods without the comforts of home (running water, bathrooms, etc).
All trips will be lead by Tom O’Brien along with several Bethel Staff. This will be Tom’s 13th summer as a guide for the Teen Adventure Program. He enjoys backpacking and camping, and is enthusiastic about taking young men and women into the wilderness so they can see and live in the beauty of God’s amazing creation. Tom is a Red Cross certified Lifeguard Instructor, is trained in Ropes Course Facilitation and Safety, and is certified as a Wilderness First Responder.
