Located on 600 acres in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, Camp Rockmont is an interdenominational Christian summer camp for boys ages 6-16.

Camp Rockmont invites campers to experience the wildness of being a boy outside, the welcoming embrace of a loving community and the wonder of being alive. Rockmont welcomes boys from all over the nation and the world to become active members of this meaningful and adventurous community. Boys learn to thrive through activities, skills, and daily life on over 650 beautiful acres of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Camp Rockmont's focus is male development in an intentional Christian community. Activities include camping, hiking, kayaking, blacksmithing, homesteading, canoeing, crafts, guitar, wood working, and more! Campers live in a cabin of 8-12 boys their age, select 6 skills to learn and develop, and participate in large- group adventurous activities with their age group. Rockmont seeks to foster a better understanding and respect for self and others through group living and shared experiences; an appreciation and concern for the environment; greater self-reliance, self-respect, self- confidence, and self-esteem; strengthened understanding and care for their neighbor; and a greater understanding of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Established in 1956, Camp Rockmont offers a big dose of nature-based challenge, inspiration, and rejuvenation.
