Tell me more about the SMA Mountain Bike Masters Program: 

The SMA Mountain Bike Masters Program is ideal for campers who are passionate about mountain biking excited about the opportunity to ride world class trails on a daily basis. Campers in the program ride everymorning on single track trails at Raystown Lake called the Allegrippis Trail System. They were described in a Dirt Rag Magazine article as "Thirty-three miles of buttery smooth single-track bliss". Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff are excited to ride every day and help campers hone their riding skills and confidence. The MOUNTAIN BIKE MASTERS PROGRAM is limited to eight campers. SMA is an incredible Mountain Biking Summer Camp.  Campers not enrolled in the Mt Bike Masters Program will get ample time to mountain bike during their time at SMA. 


Stone Mountain Adventures (SMA) is a co-ed overnight teen and "tween" summer camp for 60 teenagers ages 12-16 located in the mountains of central Pennsylvania.

We offer exciting and engaging activities and events everyday including:

Our teen “tween” campers learn new skills, gain self confidence, make strong friendships and become members of our strong, value centered summer community.

Things that make SMA Teen Summer Camp unique are:

  • Young Teen Focused Activities
  • Choose Your Own Activities Everyday
  • Adventures and Camping Overnights Out of Camp
  • Campers increase self confidence and Independence
