The Caverns Brings Back Unique Summer Camp

Registration now open for 2023 summer sessions.

Camp Caverns — a residential summer camp in Southeast, Tennessee like no other on Earth, or below it — returns in 2023. Registration is now open for kids 8-14 for two summer sessions, July 9 – 15 and July 16 – 22, 2023.

What’s new at Camp Caverns?

Campers will spend the night at The Caverns in a newly constructed yurt village, which will be the center of camp life.

At camp, kids will discover secret underground passages, soar through trees on a ziplines, hike through a majestic forest to a beautiful swimming hole, enjoy a special bluegrass underground concert just for them, and much more. Campers will practice courage and teamwork, participate in art and sports, and learn the value of perseverance and resilience. Most of all, they will discover timeless friendships that they will carry with them forever!

“Next year, we’ll continue some traditions of our first year while beginning new ones. We have an exciting program filled with exploration and discovery,” says Jen Mayo, Camp Caverns director. “But it’s the relationships we see our campers form with each other, and with our dedicated counselors and crew, that’s what has me the most excited about Camp Caverns in 2023.”

Gift Idea for Parents: Give camp for Christmas! Instead of gadgets and screens, an epic summer experience makes for the perfect stocking stuffer.
