BRX 2 Now Open to Rising 9th Graders

By Sandy Schenck

Our other expeditions are full or almost full but BRX 2 (June 29 – July 16, 2010) still has spaces. In an effort to provide more room for campers who want to go on an expedition, we are opening BRX 2 to rising 9th graders.  

This expedition is filled with creating your own community, developing leadership skills and taking care of each other while hiking, backpacking, canoeing, rock waterfallphotoclimbing and more! Also, participants design and plan part of the session schedule themselves.

Scholarship are available upon request so fill out an application today! We would love to see you back at GRP on this exciting expedition.

If you have any questions, please contact Beth Bockoven at or call 828-698-8828.

From BRX Expeditioners:

The two weeks spent here were truly some of the most exciting, educational, fun and overall amazing weeks I have ever spent. The mountains were beautiful; the community we formed was tight.

My favorite thing is the wonderful sense of community that is created at BRX. Other things I loved were the backpacking adventure in the Black Mountains. I will never forget walking through the clouds. My least favorite thing was that it had to end because I really loved every second of this trip.

I would just like to thank all of you for giving me the opportunity to come to this amazing place and really discover who I am. This was truly an experience of a lifetime.
