Camp ACC provides the perfect environment to escape the overwhelming
lives our young people find themselves in, and the programs provide the
teaching of Godís love in a unique and life-changing way. Located in a
beautiful wooded setting at the base of the Unaka Mountains, students and
adults alike are able to leave their world behind to experience Godís love
in a fun and exciting way.
The fun never stops at Camp ACC! The countless activities offered are
designed specifically for the ages of those attending. It is easy to say
that students of all ages have the time of their lives while here!
