About ACA Camps/Afterschool Programs

For over 50 years, The Greiner family has become a prominent leader in the guided outdoor adventure industry in the Southeastern United States.  Jeff Greiner, managing owner of the Adventure Center of Asheville, grew up in the outdoor adventure industry with his family. In 1971, Jeff’s parents started the first whitewater rafting business (Wildwater, Ltd.) in the Southeast on the Chattooga River. That small family business has grown into one of the largest and most respected professional outfitters in the United States with five locations and over 20 different adventures to choose from.

Ten years ago, the Asheville Summer Camps at the Adventure Center were created to offer the younger generation an option to get outdoors in the summer months.  Our objective is now to offer a wide variety of adventure experiences and active lifestyles while teaching leadership, responsibility, respect for the environment and others, and cooperative skills all year long. No other camp/afterschool program in Western NC offers the wide range of activities and adventures!

Throughout the year, we offer a variety of well supervised biking and adventure day camp and afterschool options for kids ages 5-15 of every skill level. Activities vary but include fun outdoor adventure activities for your child to experience!

What Our Camps Guests Are Saying…

“A friend suggested I sign up my ten-year old for the Kolo Bike Park camp this summer. The kid was already pretty passionate about mountain biking and dirt jumping before, but his experience at Kolo definitely planted the seeds of a lifelong love for riding his bike.  He particularly enjoyed being coached by his camp counselor Kevin, who always found the right words of encouragement and helped him to refine his skills on the trails and on jump lines. Wonderful mentorship into play, and someone for my son to look up to. The staff was also super welcoming and very pro-active in helping us to find a new better bike for him. He will definitely be back to ride there again soon.”

Axelle F.

“Awesome place for camps for your kids! My kids have participated in both the adventure camp and kolo bike camp. Counselors are fantastic and encourage your kids to try new things and help them build their skills. We will be back even during the fall for more fun and adventures! We’ve gone for years as a family participating in lots of their activities. What a perfect place to get outdoors and moving especially during this pandemic.”

April W.

“As locals, we love having a full bike park just 10 minutes from the house–pump tracks, single trails, skill park and friendly, fantastic staff. Our son goes to camp here all summer, and I ride with him several afternoons a week after work. Definitely consider the annual pass, as the more you know the park, the more you realize it has to offer. “

Association For Traditional Studies

“This is an outstanding place with amazing staff! My son signed up for MTB camp this past summer. When we went to get him on the first day we were immediately met with a huge smile and excitement. My son loved this place. It really was like an adventure for him, teaching various skills and they met him at his level and gave him tools to boost his confidence as a rider. He loved the camp so much we signed him up for another session. I can’t say enough about the good things this camp provides! It’s a wonderful place!!”

Samantha S.

“My son did 2 sessions with you this summer and loved it so much he’s trying to become a junior counselor.  He really enjoyed being on his bike and especially loved Kevin and all that he learned from him. It was also a great way for him to see his team from ICI in a safe socially distant environment.”

Kimberly W.

“My 9 year old enjoyed Kolo bike park camp last week – and he is back this week with his 13 year old sister enjoying Adventure Camp. They are having a blast a rating it a “13” on a scale of 1-10. And kids are honest! Great staff. Safe and social distance friendly. Get outdoors and live life!”

Jennifer O.

“The grounds and pump track are beautifully manicured. Staff is very friendly and they host a great camp for kids!”

Alicia M.

“Our son has enjoyed two weeks of bike camp at KOLO this summer. Fantastic time with great counselors. He enjoyed it so much, he wants to be a counselor in training next year.”

My wife and I had a blast on the zip lines. Our instructors, Jordan and Trent, were awesome and a ton of fun! It’s... always refreshing to be around people who work great together and truly enjoy where they work. I would highly recommend booking the Asheville Zipline Adventure. If at all possible, I would recommend these two take you around because they will make sure you have fun the entire time. Jordan was also super helpful in recommending restaurants and other activities while we were visiting Asheville from central Pennsylvania.read more

I HIGHLY recommend this place!! This past summer we did the white water rafting and zip lining combo. This package... included Lunch. I was expected a hot dog, or mediocre burger, nope, this lunch was amazing!!! I would go there for the lunch alone! The staff was great! I loved everything about our experience. If we ever travel back that way... I will do it again!!!read more

Did the tree top adventure. Really had a fun time. Everyone in my group enjoyed it (and many talked about coming back).... Their smart safety system makes you feel quite secure. They have a variety of trials with a wide range of difficulty from super easy for kids (purple) up to so hard it’ll leave you exhausted and sore for days (black).read more

We had a great time! We took a group of corporate customers as part of an educational retreat. The location was... perfect-just a few minutes from the downtown hotels. The trip was run very smoothly from start to finish. Our two guides, West and Trent were perfect hosts and took our folks from nervous first time zippers to cannonballing high adventure heroes in no time at all! My very favorite part of the whole trip was when our most nervous participant smiled from ear-to-ear coming into the last platform! She was so proud of herself for conquering her fear and having fun while doing it. Highly recommend!read more

I chaperoned a group of 25 high school freshmen on a recent trip and they all had a marvelous time. The students most... enjoyed the teambuilding we did in the morning part of our session and found the facilitators engaging and attentive. Students also felt empowered to challenged themselves on the ropes course in the afternoon; even students who had vehemently claimed they wouldn't do it still tried at least one level. The more experienced students also delighted in the variety of obstacles and challenges awaiting them. I would definitely take a group here again.read more

Took our (just turned) 8 year old today to the kid zip area and we had a great time! Reasonably priced and the staff... was very friendly. Small enough where our son wasn't too scared to get started but big enough to still challenge him to conquer some of his fears. Needless to say, by the end he was ziplining and letting go to put his hands out. There were other areas of the park we will definitely try next time we come to Asheville. Highly recommend!read more

Such an entertaining place!! Had a great time. The courses are challenging but doable and that’s what keeps it fun. The... only two downsides in my opinion were that 1. It only lasts 2 hours and starts from when you watch a video and do the whole harness thing, so you lose time to actually be up on the trees and 2. I’ve been to other adventure parks and they sell/rent gloves because the courses have elements where you need to hold onto a rope or cable. I asked for them but they don’t sell/rent or even suggest you to bring your own. My hands were really hurting afterwards. Anyways, I’d recommend it!!read more

I was very nervous but... our guides helped me gain confidence safely and they were so supportive and funny. We were only in town for a few days so when another zip line company cancelled our reservation due to inclement weather, we were thrilled and relieved to be able to come to Adventure Center of Asheville. Thanks for staying open and showing us a great time! Also loved the Covid safety protocols in place.read more

Our group of 8 had an amazing time on the Zipline adventure. Our guides Marz and Donovan were great. They were... extremely knowledgeable and eased some of our groups anxiety before beginning. They start you on some smaller lines before moving on to the bigger and better ones. They are also hilarious and had some killer one liners, they are sure to make you laugh. We had a great time and would definitely do it again. If you're apprehensive at all about doing this don't be, by the end, our most apprehensive person was just as eager as everyone else to get to zipping!!!read more

A lot of fun for the whole family. The price for the adventure was cheap compared to other parks we've been to and the... instructors were great. Hated having to wear a mask though which took away from the fun. Every time my mask would slip off slightly I was scolded but I guess that's where were at right now. All in all it was well worth it. Side note:Asheville has changed folks. Don't go downtown unless you're wearing a mask, even outside. The hippies run the show and will cuss you out for walking outside without one. I will NEVER go to downtown Asheville againread more

Spent the day here and loved every minute! The ziplining was amazing, and our guides Brandon and Marz made every second... enjoyable. I want to come back again and hopefully zip with those guides! You hand break here, instead of the automatic, which I actually prefer because I feel I have more control. The guides signal you when you need to break, and whether to break harder or softer. Loved every moment!read more

Our family came to the Asheville area from Virginia for a long weekend in an effort to change up our scenery and give... our kids something to look forward to because we had been under our stay-at-home order since mid-March. We decided to do the ziplining tour at Asheville Adventure Center because it gave us a chance to do something as a family outside and it was an activity the kids were really excited about. The folks at Asheville Adventure Center were amazing. Very friendly, with a great customer service attitude. We had our safety training with Jeff, whom I think is the owner, and our ziplining guides were Brandon and Donovan. They were terrific. Very low stress, but also very focused on safety and procedure. We had a very nice time talking with them over the two hours and we can't say enough about how much they added to our enjoyment of the experience. During the ziplining, we all had to wear facemasks because it was not possible to always stay six feet apart during time on the tree platforms but it was not too much of a bother and it actually ended up keeping my face warm because it was cool and breezy up in the trees. We highly recommend this company and will come back to do another activity with them the next time we come to Asheville!read more

My first time on a zipline and I loved it! I was especially impressed by the safety standards at the Adventure Center.... They took time for a training session to ensure all participants could demonstrate basic skills. ANY time a participation was up high, he/she was securely tethered by at least one (usually more) line to a strong cable. But our guides weren’t all business. Their jokes, stories, and little dance/demonstrations added greatly to the super fun experience. So go, zip, laugh and know you are in very safe hands.read more

Loved that all the kids could participate and could be fairly independent (our group had ages 5-9). Also challenging... enough for the more experienced adults in the group.read more

Great experience for groups, either family or company groups on a retreat. This was my 1st time. And some parts were... harder then I thought but I got through it. They have levels of course (easy-difficult) you can take kids too! My daughter is 13 and can go on the bigger zipline. A fun experience!! I would definitely recommend! (They even do "Amazing Race" type set ups for larger groups .read more

If you have a dirt jump bike there's a small section that's worth going to the rest of this if you're coming here for x... cedar mountain bike and I woildl go somewhere else.There's a zip line thing here that's probably pretty cool but I didn't go on that. But that's a separate entity but the bike parks in the same place this review is for the bike park. I feel they're going to charge us all to come here they should at least maintain the trailer so they're nice and smooth. If it was free I wouldn't even complainread more

I’ve gone to this place once every few months for the past two years. It is the best place to go for progression... without the pedaling. It closer than any real fun trail system to ride. Has endless features to session and a staff that is always kind and welcoming. My wife and I got jumping tips from one of the kids at their camp the other month and now we are starting to clear table tops!!!! They just have every increment of progression and everything is tucked away and separated enough that you aren’t constantly being watched by everyone while you are attempting to send but also close enough that if you fall and yell there is a better chance some one would hear you. Just spend your money here please and help make it even better. They’ve been putting in serious work.read more

We made our reservations thru the 1800 number. This was our first time zipping. The staff easily accommodated all... levels of skill and comfort zones. Safety was clearly paramount. Our group was large - 3 kids and 3 adults (age 7 to 60) They have zipping to fit all. 2 of the group did the kid course, 4 on the Canopy tour. Be aware the canopy tour lasts much longer than the kid side, but you can stay on the kid side as long as you want. Richard and Grant did an amazing job! These guys are professional, respectful. Can't wait to try this again! We had a great time. Worth the cost.read more

The park is awesome! We are just passing through and decided to stop. I am glad we did. They offer zip lining, mountain... biking, and pump tracks. We rented an e-bike and that thing is kool. The kids had a blast as well.read more

Trails were confusing. I tried the beginner one and had to walk most of it. It might have just been me, seeing as I... don't do a lot of mountain biking, but my Dad(who does) said it was confusing as well.read more

I had never mountain biked before I came here and was very pleasantly surprised that the trails were manageable for a... complete beginner like me. It was also really nice that some of the trails are intermediate level so as I got more comfortable I could try more difficult trails/tricks. I’ll definitely be back!read more

Short trails with overgrown areas that should be kept up with, but we managed to make the best of the trip. There are... still some nice opportunities to work on skills. The staff in the gift shop were not friendly. The dirt jumps were closed due to rain the morning before, so plan accordingly with weather.read more

They do a jump night during the summers that is fun and well attended. It’s a fun little park. They’ve worked hard on... it. There are lots of little features to work on things like jumping and dropping. They do have a more advanced jump line... but that seems to be it for very advanced features.read more

As locals, we love having a full bike park just 10 minutes from the house--pump tracks, single trails, skill park and... friendly, fantastic staff. Our son goes to camp here all summer, and I ride with him several afternoons a week after work. Definitely consider the annual pass, as the more you know the park, the more you realize it has to offer. UPDATE: PLEASE CONSIDER EXTENDING CAMP NOW THAT SCHOOLS HAVE MOVED TO ONLINE LEARNING! Perhaps two sessions a day to handle the crowds (morning group, afternoon group) or afternoons or... WE WILL SIGN UP! Our children will need more than just outside time with homeschooling, but outside time that builds skills and involves learning.read more

Great bike park with multiple pump tracks, singletrack trails, and kids tracks. One of the few parks we've been to with... bicycle tracks specifically for the little ones. My kids loved it! The whole park is covered in well marked mountain bike tracks and trails divided up by skill level. You can rent bikes or bring your own to ride. Tons of fun for beginners or advanced riders!read more

I brought my son out here to fight boredom and get some exercise and accomplished both. In addition we had a great... deal of fun and met some great people!Upon arrival my son decided to inform me that his brakes weren't working at all. There we were with no tools or ability to continue riding. Luckily an employee at the park named Collin came to the rescue. He had my son's bike stopping better than ever.Great facility. Great people. Great tracks. 3 tons of fun!read more
