Family Camp: Summer Sun. Summer Fun.
Please Note: We are delaying the registration process for Family Camp due to the coronovirus pandemic. We will contact families who attended in 2019 and update this webpage for new families to register once we open registration for 2020.
Our popular family camp weekend — Camp Blue Heaven — returns for the 25th consecutive year, Aug. 14-16, and will be held at Camp Cheerio, located in the N.C. mountains.
Camp Blue Heaven welcomes participants of all ages although families who have participated state that the most ideal age for children participants is 7-14.
Activities include arts and crafts, swimming, canoeing, horseback ring riding, archery, riflery, tennis, climbing wall, skeet shooting and a giant water slide.
Saturday afternoon features clinics led by Morehead Planetarium staff and Joe Breschi ’90, head coach for UNC Men’s Lacrosse. Campers will also have the option to participate in a canoeing excursion.
