Adventure Treks at Bert Adams
In 2014 Bert Adams will continue its popular Adventure Treks program as part of its Boy Scout resident camp programs. 1 Adventure Trek is included in the fees for each Scout! All participants receive a patch.
During the afternoon and/or evening of your choice travel 38 miles to Stone Mountain Park for a unique Georgia experience. Stone Mountain is a 1,686 foot tall monadnock located in Atlanta's eastern suburbs. Stone Mountain is famous for its geologic significance and also for the largest bas relief sculpture in the world (90 x 190 ft.) of three Confederate leaders. Your troop can spend your visit hiking, learning about Georgia history, visiting attractions, and say for the famous LaserShow Spectacular in MountainVision (world's longest-running laser show--27 years). Ask our dining hall to pack a sack meal for you, or enjoy one of Stone Mountain's restaurants.
On Thursday evening travel 38 miles to the Atlanta Motor Speedway for a night of Bandolero, Legends, and Thunder Roadster racing. It's an evening of fun and grassroots racing on a paved quarter-mile track at Atlana Motor Speedway: the Thunder Ring. Drivers as young as 8-years old come from all over the nation to battle for the right to be called champions.
Experience a real horseback trail ride! Trained staff will lead you on a backcountry ride. Scouts also learn about horse care and general riding techniques.
