You can run away from home and bring the whole family with you! There is no better way to spend a weekend than with your family exploring Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Your family can choose from hikes, crafts, games, waterfalls, beautiful views, campfires, and still have plenty of time to enjoy each other. You'll have opportunities for discovery and adventure AND we do all the cooking! It doesn't get much better than that! Join our talented staff for a weekend you and your family will never forget. Program lasts from Friday supper through Sunday lunch.
 
Cost: $422 for family of four ages 6 and up ($93 for each additional person). While we occasionally accept children as young as 4, all activities are geared for ages 6 and up. If a weekend just isn't enough, check out our Smoky Mountains Family Camp July 8-13.
