EARTH Camp at Buffalo Cove

Earth Camp

Our EARTH Camp sessions create the core of our summer wilderness experiences for youth. The primary goal of our EARTH Camp program is to help children discover how to live closely with the earth through experiences with a vast range of earth skills and outdoor activities. These programs all focus on nurturing our youth into caring, responsible, capable, aware, community oriented individuals. They all incorporate experiences and skills that are appropriate for the group of campers attending in session. All lessons are very experiential in nature...we believe in really immersing ourselves into our education. Of course, fun and friendships fill our days!! We offer four different sessions to meet the needs of our camper community. Please follow the link below to learn more and see what sessions we have to offer this summer!

Custom Programs - Designed Just For You and Your Group!

Buffalo Cove will work with pre-established groups (school groups, church groups, office groups, scouts, group of friends, families, etc.) to design the ideal outdoor experience for your group. Examples of such programs would be: a wilderness survival camp for a Boy Scout troop, group interaction activities for an office group, watershed study program for a high school science class or a canoe camping trip for your family. These types of programs are available year round depending on scheduling and the content of a desired program. Please contact us if you are interested in designing a custom program for your organization.

Outreach and Education

Buffalo Cove offers outreach education programs which take place out of camp at local schools, community organizations, public landmarks etc. Our outreach programs bring the natural world into the front country setting. Participants in outreach programs gain valuable knowledge and skills during daytime workshops that offer some of the same activities offered in camp. This is our way of giving back to the community and providing a quality educational experience for the public.

Camp Waya

Camp Waya

Buffalo Cove Outdoor Education Center (BCOEC) has been fortunate to have secured a Kennedy Foundation grant in the creation and offering of Camp WAYA: Woodland Adventure for Youth Alliance, to foster community, connection and confidence in local youth. Waya, the Cherokee word for wolf, is symbolic in that the wolf is a pack animal and the entire pack takes joy and responsibility in raising the young. This 6-day wilderness adventure camp aims to serve boys and girls from the North Carolina High Country who are lacking in community and/or family support.

Waya sessions are funding dependent - please check for available programs.
