Camp Henry Outdoor School

Camp Henry Outdoor School (CHOS)
“Learning to Experience God’s Creation Simply”

CHOS focuses on learning, living and traveling  in a backcountry setting.  Participants will learn through hands-on experience planning routes, food rationing, map reading, Leave-No-Trace ethics, and expedition management.  Using lightweight equipment and backpacking skills, you will experience the incredible Smoky Mountains that create the scenic backdrop for Camp Henry.  Led by our experienced CHOS staff and a chaplain, participants receive instruction on all facets of planning and leading a safe and enjoyable backcountry expedition.  This is an extremely popular program with very limited space so please register early.

Our one week CHOS sessions for Middle School and High School aged youth, are a great way to learn how to prepare and plan your own wilderness expeditions. Spend a week with folks your own age learning and using wilderness traveling and camping skills. You will also spend a day climbing on Camp Henry’s Alpine Tower challenge course at the CHOS base camp. Each CHOS trip includes a day of rock climbing and a day of whitewater rafting.

CHOS trips can also be scheduled for youth groups, scout troops, families and other groups.  Please contact Camp Henry to schedule a private CHOS trip.
