Adventure Youth Program
Presenting youth who are at risk of out-of-home placement
and youth who are in foster care with opportunities to
explore the world around them in a unique and intimate setting.
More Than Summer Camp
Unlike traditional summer camps, our Adventure Youth Program (AYP) is year-round and maintains small group sizes, conducted on a family farmstead.
AYP continues to adapt in offering transformative outdoor experiences for youth at Enchanted Hills Family Farm, a gateway to beautiful state parks, waterfalls, lakes, and trails in northern Georgia. Many get to swim, hike, canoe, fish, and sleep under the stars for the first time in their lives and come away feeling refreshed and renewed.
Enchanted Hills Family Farm
Our north Georgia foothills campsite rests between two streams that feed into a 3-acre pond. Youth can relax in hammocks underneath a canopy of tall pines or stay in cabin spaces during inclement weather. They awake to the rustic sights, sounds, and smells of nature and a campfire. The eating and gathering takes place in a spacious and beautiful yurt, where they can also watch an evening movie, participate in arts and crafts, and simply enjoy the company of the other campers and staff along with their respective families.
How It Operates

The AYP Vision
The goals of AYP are to provide youth with a natural setting where they can heal, grow, and flourish.
If willing and capable, youth may assist in meal preparation, cleaning up the campground/cabin, and other elements pertaining to a productive life.
Growth & Development
We aim to instill a sense of confidence, belonging, and accomplishment in youth which readily translates into their personal growth and development.
