Smoky Mountain Getaways
We love our groups! Whitewater Express provides THE ultimate experience for groups of all sizes and types. With the mix of our facilities, Ocoee River rafting trips, and high adventure we can make any group trip a memorable one. Our safety record, which has remained at the very top of the industry since 1980, will give you the peace of mind that you deserve while spending time with us at any of our locations! There is NO group too big for us. We have group accommodations along with big meeting rooms, full food service, huge recreation fields, and now a new waterfront!! It is not just any lake. Our lake has a blob with two towers, a rope bridge high above the water, a dock, and a lakeside pavilion. What could be more fun?!
We work with a variety of groups — churches, Scouts, colleges, family reunions, corporations, leadership retreats, etc. Our Retreat Center package might be just what you’re looking for Contact us for more information! See how we can be a perfect fit for your next group event!
When you are getting ready to plan your next Smoky Mountain family vacation, why not come visit us in the mountains. We have deluxe Ocoee River cabins suitable for small and large families. And of course you can take advantage of all the high adventure that we offer while you are there.
The bonds between Scouting and Whitewater Express have always been strong. For over 20 years we have provided Ocoee River rafting and other high adventure programming to Woodruff Scout Reservation. In addition to the Atlanta Area Council, we currently provide high adventure to Camp Daniel Boone of the Daniel Boone Council, Camp Grimes of the Mecklenburg County Council, Camp Yocona of the Yocona Area Council, and Camp Mack Morris of the West Tennessee Area Council. We also have worked with many Venturing Programs including hosting a summer camp, high adventure programming, and snow skiing trips to West Virginia. We are very fortunate through all of these programs to work with thousands of Scouts from all over the South each year.
Whitewater Express provides instruction in the Whitewater, Kayaking, Climbing, Horsemanship, and Snow Sports Merit Badges. We are happy to provide this instruction free of charge to your troop while on a trip to Whitewater Express.
For over 30 years, we have brought youth groups together with high-adventure and worship in one of the country’s great camps!
Youth ministers frequently tell us they are bringing their youth group back to the camp that was so important to them in their teens.
Here are a few reasons why we have become an important part of the life of hundreds of youth ministers.
Refuge – We are a Christian company providing a safe refuge for your youth. Our camp is a drug and alcohol-free environment. We are charged with the excitement of helping young people discover the outdoors, strengthen their friendships, and strengthen their foundation in Christ.
Low Price – We enjoy providing exceptional service and the finest facilities around at the lowest prices available! It is important to us that we fit your budget, so you determine the cost of the trip by selecting which activities best suit your youth group.
Service – From the moment you arrive until the time you leave, you will receive outstanding service. Our attention to detail will allow you to focus on your ministry!
Safety – Our safety record is unmatched in the industry so you can feel secure in the hands of our highly experienced team of guides. Since 1980 we have provided over one million high adventure activities with no serious injuries!
Flexibility – We allow you complete flexibility to create the best schedule for your group. You can stay just one day or stay for the week. We are happy to accommodate your schedule and needs.
Mission – Our staff is looking forward to working with you to find important service opportunities for your youth. There are many options near to the camp where your group can serve.
Please consider joining us this year for a retreat. We think you will agree we truly have raised the bar on camp for youth ministry. Call or email today to begin a great new tradition for your youth!
