A message from Camp Director Jud Millar-

In 1983, my parents Pam and Biff Houldin started Stone Mountain Adventures (SMA) by opening our family farm to a small group of teens and counselors. Since then SMA has morphed into a magical summer camp, a home away from home for so many people across the globe. My wife Anne & I with our young children now own and operate SMA while Pam and Biff live just across the road and are still involved in the day to day activities of camp.

Over the years we have kept our promise of staying a small, family-oriented   2 week teen summer camp. We believe that our camp’s small size directly affects the quality of our programming as camp quickly becomes a close knit community that creates strong, positive intrapersonal relationships. Campers are challenged on activities every day which builds confidence. The combination of mutual respect among campers and staff and the increased self-confidence through physical endeavors helps teens to begin to discover who they really are and how they fit into this world. Being a young teen can be a challenging time and SMA is a fun, safe place for teens to grow emotionally and physically.

Year after year, our greatest concern is the safety of our campers and staff. Constant attention is given to the physical and emotional health of all involved. Precautions are taken and safety is paramount (seatbelts, helmets, lifejackets, etc. are non-negotiable). Camp is noisy, full of laughs and a fantastically fun, healthy atmosphere for all during the summer. With a summer family of 20 staff and 60 campers, most people think we are crazy, but we have a large family of our own, so the summer is just a little noisier.

We genuinely enjoy the opportunity to provide a healthy and fun atmosphere in which teenagers and staff can develop greater confidence and set and achieve personal goals at our 2 week teen summer camp. We invite you to join our summer family.
