Messages from the Mountains

The mountains are a great place for a family vacation, there are so many places to visit and explore. We have started the Just for Kid's section so that we can share a bit of the mountains with your kids. Read our stories, read our book reviews, visit our sponsors print our coloring pages, color them at home or take them in the car to entertain you on your mountain trip. We are starting a new "Highlander Kid Club" with free membership to bring positive stories, books, trips, art and creative projects. Bookmark and come back to watch the progress.

Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park

Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park

If new visitors know anything about us, they know Chimney Rock - the epic, ancient bit of granite that stands majestically over some of the most beautiful terrain you'll find. The views it offers across Hickory Nut Gorge are jaw-dropping.

John C. Campbell Folk School

John C Campbell Folk School offers creative, learning vacations for adults in a beautiful natural setting. With classes in craft, art, music, dance, cooking, gardening, nature studies, photography and writing.

Discover why Rand McNally Atlas named the Folk School one of the top 30 U.S. destinations for a day’s visit in their Best of the Road listing. Numerous walking trails meander the 300-acre campus, including the Rivercane Walk, a creekside trail with art honoring the strong Cherokee heritage of the Appalachian area.

Medicine Bow Classes - Mark Warren
Medicine Bow Kid's Summer Camp

Medicine Bow Adventure Camp for both boys and girls 10 and older wanting a broader spectrum of activities, survival skills, learning plants and their uses, tomahawk & knife throwing, archery, fire creation, games, hikes …

By request, I have started offering summer camps dedicated just to the skill and adventure of Archery.  Pardon the boast, but there is no archery program like this one. I pour my 25 years of experience into the best instruction I have yet experienced in any other camp or school. But this serious teaching is balanced by games of adventure, quickness, and discretion such as were practiced in Native American communities as well as in Sherwood Forest.
