Session Add-ons: 

Stay-over Weekends

Are you looking to extend your camper’s Watia experience? Campers staying for consecutive weeks can take advantage of our Super Stay-over Weekends! For just $50, campers can take advantage of all that camp has the offer in a smaller community.

Important Notes:

  • The stay-over weekend is included in Session 3 (Two week session).
  • There is not a stay-over weekend available between Sessions 4 and 5. 

Horseback Riding

Is your camper interested in the adventure of a trail ride? Our horseback riding program offers the opportunity to explore the Nantahala National Forest under the supervision of our trusty trail guides and camp staff. Campers will participate in two one-hour trail rides and one hour of "barn lessons." We partner with Nantahala Village Riding Stables for our horseback riding trips. All ages. Cost: $90.

Whitewater Rafting

Campers and staff will experience the rush of Class II and Class III whitewater rapids on two half-day trips down the Nantahala River. On the first trip your child will be in a guided raft. The next day they have the option of a guided raft or a two-person inflatable kayak.  Grades: 5th grades and up. Cost: $105
