At Camp Spring Creek, children with dyslexia begin to love learning again.
Our 80-acre property in the mountains of Western North Carolina is a peaceful place for campers to try new things and develop community.
Our facilities include a main lodge, dining hall, art barn, woodshop, swimming pool, campers’ cabins, climbing wall, and a zipline. We have six campers’ cabins and children are grouped by gender and age. Each cabin houses eight campers; our maximum is 32 children.
At Camp Spring Creek, our food is prepared daily with as many fresh local ingredients as possible. We don’t serve fried or processed food: even our salad dressings are made on site! We believe good nutrition is an important part of a camper’s success.
Central to Camp Spring Creek is Spring Creek! This creek runs down the mountain through our camp, providing a place for kids to explore nature.
