Rafting down your first whitewater stream, taking a spin around the corral on a pony named Fireball, zipping from the treetops into a cool mountain pond, telling ghost stories around the blazing campfire—whatever you do, don’t grow up before you’ve experienced summer camp in the Blue Ridge Mountains. (And it’ll be a great chance for your parents to sneak away for an unforgettable vacation of their own.)
