-Rock climbing, rappelling, and instructed hiking adventures-

How much adventure can be had in a day? We'd love to show you! Appalachian Mountain Leadership offers Full Day Adventures for groups that may include rock climbing, rappelling, hiking (on or off-trail), and scenic and remote reflection time. All of our Full Day Adventures will provide a challenging experience followed by a period of reflection. We believe that activities as demanding as rock-climbing are rich in lessons, and we're committed to helping participants fully unpack those lessons and return to their communities, schools, and homes with a greater awareness and capacity to be positive influencers (a.k.a. "great leaders").

-Backpacking and multi-element weekend trips and expeditions-

Our overnight adventures are truly immersive experiences that Appalachian Mountain Leadership offers. Our trained instructors lead your group on a one to five night backpacking trip in the beautiful and rugged mountains of western North Carolina. We can even include rock-climbing and rappelling into your group's experience. The reward of groups navigating the terrain together, cooking together, setting up a bear-hang together, solving problems together, being challenged together and experiencing success together is substantial. 

We are committed to tapping into the powerful leadership lessons that are present when a group goes on expedition together. We have a deep passion for drawing out the leadership potential within each member of a group.
