I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love Stone Mountain Adventures!! This is my second year coming to camp and its been amazing. I got to see my old friends from last year; Tyler, Odessa and Jordyn and it was so nice to see them again, I also made new friends; Kaylen, Kendal and Lily. We all had a lot of fun together getting to know each other, making each other laugh and having adventures. We’re all very different in our own ways but I think that’s what made us all click somehow. I’m so glad I met all of them.

My favourite activity at Stone Mountain was SUP and sail! Always getting to go with Jordyn and Odessa was fun because we just hung out on the paddle boards, talked and laughed. Jordyns shenanigans are always funny to watch! It was the best activity because of the heat wave that had come through as well… it was pretty refreshing. SUP and sail was just really fun all the time. I love SUP and sail.

SMA is a wonderful place. The energy of this place cannot be replicated anywhere else. It’s amazing here and when you come you never want to leave!

Session 1 was way bigger than session 4 last year. This being my second year I felt like a veteran camper already. Besides seeing old friends and making new ones I think this session was pretty nice. I tried some new activities and had fun trying them. I’m not writing too much because im here for two sessions so will probably write more at the end of session 2. Well between Tim, Jim and Kim I prefer Kim. While ash and Beth are bugging me while I’m alone in a boat and Jess is broken and Swags is sick it has been a great group of councillors. With flat Matt and flannel Matt and a group more that includes Jellie (Jordan and Ellie), Helen, Nathan, Cassie and Diego. With doing things in power hour like watching the World Cup or the dancing fire (Helen) or the cat in the bush debacle; I don’t know, session 1 was not as close as session 4 last year but that’s because of there being more campers. Having so many 4th year and up campers really added to the experience.

Well, session 1 SMA ’18 has come to a close.

The Incredible SMA Summer Camp for Teens Summer 2018 has Ended...

Posted by Jud Millar

Fri, Aug 24, 2018

The Stone Mountain Adventures Summer of 2018 has officially come to a close.  It is hard wrap my head around that fact that it's already August 24th but it's true.

  • Our Campers departed on Sunday 8/19/18 (5 days ago)
  • Our Camp Counselors departed yesterday (8/23/18)
  • Wyatt and Molly (and Anne) started the school year on Wednesday 8/22/18

Amid all these endings, departures and new beginnings Stone Mountain Adventures has become a very quiet place.  Today it was just Jack, Comet, Barney, the bunnies here at camp with the horses, the chickens (bak, bak) Pam, Biff, Tammy in the barn.  


Please keep an eye on your Inbox as in the weeks to come we plan to send out:

  • Community Service Hours Certificates
  • SMA Session Slideshows
  • SMA Session Memory Books

Posted by Jud Millar

Wed, Aug 8, 2018

It's hard to believe we are already two days into SMA Session 4, but we are so excited to welcome in this new group of campers, with many new faces and a few returning to make this the best session ever! After some volleyball and swimming at Whipple Dam on opening day, we were happy to get the final campers arriving from the DC airport on Monday night for a good night of rest before the first full day of activities!

SMA 2018 3rd Session Begins! Read about the Weather, and the Camp Rule

Posted by Jud Millar

Wed, Jul 25, 2018

Stone Mountain Adventures 3rd Session Campers arrived at camp this past Sunday, July 22nd.  As new and returning campers arrived at camp for the opening day of third session, there was a mix of excited and nervous energy.  That energy was quickly harnessed into action with camp counselors leading "ice-breaker" and team-building games.

And then the rains came... the good news for us at Stone Mountain Adventures is that our facility is location in a mountainous region of central Pennsylvania so we are in no danger of flash floods.  


How do we deal with rainy days at SMA?  With positive energy and action!  There are some activities that must be modified or postponed because of heavy rain.  However, most activities we just put the word "MUD" in front of them and run them anyway including:

  • Mud Soccer

  • Mud Mountain Biking

  • Mud Ultimate Frisbee

  • Mud Hiking

  • Mud Volleyball

  • and more!

Posted by Jud Millar

Tue, Mar 28, 2017

The ever hopeful signs of Spring have begun to show itself around the eaves of the barn and in the spirit of the horses! They are anxiously waiting for the bits of green grass to grow in the pasture and are ever hopeful to lose that heavy winter coat of hair. And of course they are counting the days till the beginning of SMA when their 2 footed friends return!
