  • No other camp has as many activities as this one. Caring personnel, exciting activities, it fees like you are part of a big family. Could not be happier with the experience my children had.

  • It has been a great camp for my son. This experience for him has done so much for his self esteem. I’m very impressed with how much he has learned.

  • My daughter didn’t want to go to camp at all but she needed to get outdoors and away from the computer. She ended up having a blast. The only downside was that the weather didn’t warm up as quickly as usual and the water was cold but even with that she had a great time and made some new friends. She was 13 and thought she was too old for camp but it turned out she was not. The owners are hands on and they kids love them.

  • My kids LOVED it and are going back again this year. After hours of research on the internet, this was the best adventure camp for older youth in the south east. There were campers from all over the country. I was especially impressed when we met a camper who comes from Alaska!

  • My daughter enjoyed all the activities and thought the staff was friendly.

  • My daughter will be going back for the 3rd time this summer (she’ll be 15). She is so looking forward to her 3 weeks at SMAC. I wish she had started sooner. She has done and experienced things I never thought she would have an interest in. Knowing she is in a safe environment with a well trained and experienced staff is comforting. An all round great experience. She keeps in touch with her friends throughout the year and talks positively about SMAC throughout the year.

  • My son attended SMAC 3 summers and really enjoyed the experience. There were never any problems or issues. I highly recommend this camp.
