MTOS Campus

Accommodations within our rare ecosystem


Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Hendersonville, NC, the Bob Campbell Youth Campus can house 144 students and offers the natural beauty of Kanuga’s 1,400-acre property for a unique learning experience. Student groups that visit Mountain Trail Outdoor School utilize the ecosystems of Kanuga’s woodlands and wetlands as their outdoor classroom.

Visiting students and chaperones stay in our winterized cabins, each featuring a common room with couches and a fireplace. Cabins have two or three student bunkrooms (16 beds each), two or three chaperone bunkrooms (four beds each), a locker-room-style bathroom and chaperone bathrooms. Soap and linens for bed and bath are provided, however guests may wish to bring an extra blanket or personal soap preference.


Mountain Trail Outdoor School serves meals family style in Andrews Dining Hall. Breakfast includes a cereal bar, and lunch and supper are accompanied by a salad bar. If a child in your class has special dietary needs, please contact MTOS at least two weeks prior to your trip so that we can work together to create a meal plan, which can include options to bring food from home.

Outdoor Classes

Students and their chaperones should prepare for variable weather conditions, as MTOS classes are outdoors and run for three-hour periods. Instructors will meet groups of 10–12 students with their chaperones to guide them as they hike to a peak, delve into a pond or explore our rare Southern Appalachian Mountain Bog.

Please follow these directions to get to Kanuga Conference, Retreat and Camp Center. Continue on Kanuga Chapel Drive through the Conference Center for approximately ¾ mile.
