Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing

About

Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing is an Adventure Camp, Conference, and Retreat Center located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwest Virginia. Operating all year-round, our programs range from backpacking summer camps to weeklong school trips to gourmet dining events. We pride ourselves on offering fully customizable programs catered to the needs, goals, and expectations of our guests. Situated on 500 acres of field, forest, mountains, and streams in Virginia’s Blue Ridge, Wilderness Adventure is the perfect spot to spend the weekend, bring a group, or tie the knot. Craig’s Creek, a wide, shallow, and meandering body of water flows along nearly a half mile of the property making it perfect for tube floats, canoe paddles, or afternoon rinses on hot afternoons. The opportunities for relaxation and adventure are endless. You can move at your own pace, exploring your surroundings on foot, boat, or bike OR you can let us guide your adventures over multiple days. Let us be your basecamp for adventure! Wilderness Adventure offers beautiful, primitive campsites to fit a variety of camping styles: pull-in RV sites, individual tent camping, roof-top camping, and large, private group sites. Our campsites are privately nestled within a cedar forest along the edges of a large, spacious meadow bordering the rolling waters of Craig Creek. All sites are within walking distance of our warm shower-house and water hydrants. Ice, firewood, & water cubes are available onsite. Sometimes you’d rather experience the stars above your head. Wilderness Adventure has plenty of room (and equipment) to help you or your group experience the outdoors face-to-face.

Cancellation Policy

Refunds & Cancellations Spot2Nite convenience fees are non-refundable. GENERAL REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY - Our cancellation policy is based on our investment in food and equipment purchases, program planning, and staff training. - Due to our small group size, many sessions fill by April 1st. Cancellation on short notice often prevents others from attending, and we may be unable to recover our expenses. Because of the financial consequences of canceling within 30 days of a session, we strongly recommend you purchase refundable airline tickets and travel insurance, which will reimburse you for cancellation under certain circumstances (e.g., medical reasons, family illness, etc). For more information on travel insurance please look at the section below. Tuition will be refunded for cancellations according to the following schedule: Before April 1.............................………………....................... A full refund, less a $75 processing fee.

We reserve the right to cancel sessions or change schedules due to unforeseen circumstances. Certain trips require a minimum number of participants. In the rare event that we must cancel a session before the starting date, we will refund all amounts paid.

HOMESICKNESS/SELF-REMOVAL - Due to the structure of our program, we cannot issue refunds when a participant goes home early due to homesickness or by choice. - We encourage all parents to address potential homesickness and challenges with their child before the start of their trip, discuss that these feelings are normal and will pass, and ensure that their child is indeed ready for our program.
