Perched high in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina is the wonderful campus of Teen Valley Ranch. It covers 147 acres of land and sits at an elevation of 3,000-3,500 feet. Looking out at the incredible vistas of mountains, our campers will enjoy a specialized program of activities like nothing they have experienced before.

The Circle A Camp program is filled with all the fun camp activities you’d expect, but our focus is on something more. Through these activities, we teach campers leadership skills, teamwork, positive attitudes and productive communication. In the daily seminars, with speaker Skip Ross, they will learn life skills like handling fear, goal setting, building positive relationships, developing a proper self-image, and finding balance in life.

Teams will participate in a rotation of different events each day so there is always something new and fun to do! Some of our activities include: Zip Lines, Horses, Climbing and Rappelling Tower, Drama, Tubing, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Mountain Hikes, Softball/Baseball, Field games, Ultimate Frisbee, Team Building, Archery Range, Ping Pong, Arts and Crafts, Frisbee Golf and so much more!

In Circle A’s positive environment, they will receive encouraging communication from our team, build life long friendships and grow a new outlook on life and their achievements!
