Each summer, Eagle’s Nest Camp offers Added Adventure programs for campers who desire both the in-camp experience and an extended off-campus adventure! From the beloved traditional Huck Finn Adventure to a thrilling week of camping at the beach in South Georgia and many other adventures, Added Adventures offer something for all our campers who have finished 5th through 7th grades.

No experience is necessary for Added Adventures! Bring your excitement and join us for a great time.


All Added Adventure participants and their parents must complete a questionnaire before being considered for the program. In order to receive the questionnaire, please register your camper for the Added Adventure here. Applications, questionnaires, and deposits for Added Adventures are due November 15, 2019. Applications received after that date will be reviewed if space is available on the trip. Please note that these trips are limited in size and may fill well before the deadline!

Have you ever dreamed of floating down a mighty river on a tiny self-built raft and experiencing Huck’s great adventure? Do you like telling tall tales and making mischief? On this adventure, campers venture into Mark Twain’s novel as Jim, the Duke, and Huck, floating down the French Broad River. Navigate by the river banks and stars as you make your way west. Participants prepare the rafts and learn from communities along the river!

A classic Added Adventure!  Campers start with the traditional Eagle’s Nest Camp experience, then head to the Sea Islands – a chain of tidal and barrier islands off the coasts of South Carolina and Georgia – for a week of camping and exploring coastal ecosystems while learning about the diverse flora, fauna, and cultures found on the coast.

This year we’ll visit Cumberland Island, the southernmost island of the Georgia Sea Islands. Cumberland is preserved as a National Seashore with no bridge to the mainland, no motor vehicles, and no towns. In addition to its pristine environment, Cumberland has a rich history of settlement by Native Americans, Spanish explorers, and people from across the eastern United States.

Sleep under the stars, catch fish and crabs, and discover the rich ecosystems of this unique area.  Join us for an exciting adventure in beach life and ocean ecology!
