YHC Outdoor Adventures


It’s not an exaggeration to say that Young Harris College students can spend every weekend outdoors and never do the same thing twice. Fishing, camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, swimming—there are endless ways to find fun and fresh air. As part of the YHC Outdoor Adventures program, students are familiarizing themselves with their home in the north Georgia mountains.

START Adventure Trips

YHC has partnered with the Nantahala Outdoor Center to create four distinct adventures for incoming students. The additional $125 fee includes activities, equipment, transportation, lodging and meals.
