Great Escape


Join other Exploring & Venturing Crews while having a fun and relaxing time at Northeast Georgia's premier camping and outdoor facility Rainey Mountain.  Take a short trail hike to “Big Rock”, learn or practice archery or shooting, compete in the cardboard boat regatta, see if you can catch the most or biggest fish, or just have some fun down time with friends at the lake in kayaks or on paddle boards.  In the evening you can challenge each other to many different board games as you will also get to screen your own souvenir Great Escape T-shirt (you bring the shirt).  This is your time to escape and re-charge before returning to a new school year.

Youth Protection Required 18 & older.


$35 per youth $25 adult:  Camping, Saturday Dinner, Sunday Breakfast, Shooting, & Screening materials. 

Bring a Fun Spirit!!!  & Saturday Sack Lunch, your own shirt to screen ( light colors 50/50 blend works best), Boat Building Supplies.
