Eagle Rock is the brainchild of a group of dedicated volunteers who spent many years bringing teens on retreats to part of East Tennessee. They found that everyone enjoyed the fellowship, the camaraderie and the chance to enjoy sharing their life changing experiences with Jesus Christ. In time, the land was purchased to establish Eagle Rock Camp with a lodge, bunkhouses, an outdoor amphitheater, and more. But this is just the beginning. If you are looking for some summer fun, take a look at these amazing activities and then be sure to book your stay early, as spaces go fast.

The Rope Course

This is a state-of-the-art high ropes course with several elements. The design requires you to make use of multiple maneuvering skills and techniques to traverse the entire course. The ropes range in height  from 20 to 45 feet off the ground and take you through the beautiful woods giving you a spectacular view of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Rock Climbing/ Rappelling

These are two of the most sought-after activities. Eagle Rock’s 45-foot cliff rock face is rated as having some of the best rappelling and rock climbing is the southeastern United States. Under the careful tutelage of great instructors, campers here learn about self-confidence while at the same time learning about the spiritual analogies of trusting others even when they don’t quite understand.

Creative Arts

Whether you are a crayon and coloring book artist or the next Picasso, campers have the opportunity to explore their creativity through various activities like painting and photography. This gives each camper a chance to explore their talents at their own pace.


Eagle Rock first introduced paintball back in 2010 and it quickly became one of the most popular activities offered. Participants take part in a number of activities with a range of goals, but they must learn to work as a team if they want to reach the ultimate goal.


There is no better way to enjoy the trip from Chilhowee Lake to the base of the Abrams Falls, located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, than by canoe. This is one of the most peaceful activities offered and includes a five-mile hike, swimming, searching for arrowheads, and more.


Campers will find a nice variety of trails of varying difficulties. They include short 30-minute strolls all the way up to 5-mile treks. There are so many places to go, such as the Abrams Falls, the old Gold Mine Trail, a bat cave and more. Each hike comes with a fresh supply of Great Smoky Mountains, fresh air and amazing scenery.


Nothing could be more fun on a hot summer day than floating on the cold waters of the Little River. Campers can do this as a solo activity or as the perfect end to a long bike trek or hike. The ride lasts a full hour going through mostly calm waters. There are a few mild rapids on the way down that are sure to add a little excitement to the journey.

From amazing activities to home-cooked meals and the chance to get closer to God and nature, Eagle Rock Camp has so much to offer. Their vision has been to give everyone of all ages the chance to meet Jesus Christ for the first time or to see him in a new and life-changing way. More than this, Eagle Rock is a Christian Missions organization and serves a community of like-minded Christian churches, groups, individuals, and ministries. Be sure to book your reservations now for this summer, as spaces are filling quickly.
