Family Camp

We at Kahdalea and Chosatonga believe in the wonderful gift of family. We offer Family Camp to provide a time and a place for families to be together, to relax, to play, and to enjoy each other in a beautiful, rustic mountain setting. In doing this we hope to nurture a closeness within families and to provide a fabulous experience for all. Come spend some fun quality family time getting a taste of the mountains and the activities.

Our regular camp program includes child-centered and wilderness oriented activities. Our goal is to offer a wide range of activities to stimulate, delight and challenge each child; and to provide an opportunity for young people to develop lifetime skills and interests in a Christian environment. Our Family Camp program is a simple extension of this.

Activities offered include tennis, horseback riding, swimming, canoeing, nature, drama, arts and crafts, riflery, rock climbing, archery, backpacking, team sports, relaxation time, opportunities to explore our local nautural wonders, and more.


Family Camp takes place at Kahdalea in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Our 180 acres are bordered on three sides by the Pisgah National Forest, which provides unlimited acres of beautiful mountain woodlands. Kahdalea has its own lake, clear bubbling streams, and hiking trails. At an elevation of 2800 feet, the summer climate is lovely!


The camp assumes no responsibility for making travel arrangements to or from camp. Most family campers arrive by car. If you are flying, make arrangements to land at the Asheville, NC airport. Maps and driving directions may be found here.


We encourage you to register early. A Family Camp Application as well as a printable Family Camp Information sheet may be downloaded from the link at the top of this page. We enroll around fifty persons at Family Camp.


In light of the purpose of family camp, family time, our staff for this session is minimal. Because of this, we do not offer baby sitting.


Basic first aid supplies are available at anytime during Family Camp. In addition, we have an on-call physician nearby and the Transylvania Regional Hospital is a short drive from camp.


Stationary, toilet articles, basic camping gear, batteries and camp shirts are available at the Camp Store. Some craft supplies (i.e. tie-dye T-shirts) will also be charged to the store account.

EVERYTHING, including equipment, should be plainly marked with names.
