MTOS Campus



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 outdoor classroom and ecosystems of Kanuga’s woodlands and wetlands.

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 bunk rooms (16 beds each), two or three chaperone bunk rooms (four beds each), a locker-room-style bathroom for students, and separate bathrooms for chaperones. Guests must provide their own bedding—a fitted sheet with a sleeping bag and pillow work well.


Mountain Trail Outdoor School serves meals family style in Andrews Dining Hall. 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, rain or shine. 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.
