Zip & Splash

Camp Daniel Boone is proud to partner with the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) to provide our Scouts with multiple rafting opportunities. NOC has been in operation since 1972 and has been called "One of the Greatest Outfitters on Earth" by National Geographic Magazine. Their commitment to professionalism and safety are the cornerstone of their success. 

Scouts will enjoy this high adventure providing a mix of whitewater and aerial fun. This trek begins with whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River. This 8-mile river features easy Class I and II whitewater and finishes with the Class III Nantahala Falls.

On Tuesday, Scouts take to the air at NOC’s Zip Line Adventure Park (ZLAP) of zip lining combined with 16 rope challenges that are 20 and 40 feet off the ground. The afternoon continues the aerial adventure getting harnessed up to climb a majestic tree with the help of NOC aerial guides.

Wednesday, the aerial adventure moves to the Mountaintop Zip Line Tour, which features vista views of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Nantahala Gorge. It has the longest zip line in the region, a dramatic half-mile mega zip.

The trek shifts back to whitewater rafting on Thursday; where scouts travel to Hartford, TN to raft the Upper Section of the Pigeon River which features Class III-IV rapids that border the Great Smoky Mountains.

The week finishes on the world’s third oldest river the French Broad. This river has class II and III whitewater and flows through the scenic Pisgah National Forest. 

Crews will be housed primarily at the Lumpkin Adventure Base and will be responsible to cook their own meals. Evening program activities include human foosball, cornhole and frisbee golf.
