Last October we enjoyed our first ever Rapp Nature Camp Fall Gathering.  We shared a delicious meal together at Azalea Rocks with several dozen campers, camper families, and friends of Camp, provided by a PATH Foundation grant.  The feeling in the clear Autumn air was one of happy community fellowship and simple celebration that our 38-year-old camp continues to thrive.  


For adults, we will be offering a series of outings to interesting habitats in Rappahannock and adjoining counties.  These outings will be free of charge, and meeting times and places will be announced individually on fairly short notice.  Once again, we’ll be contacting former Perennial Campers, but check this site for further developments.  If you would like to sign up as a Perennial Camper and receive notices of outings, please contact Lyt Wood at [email protected].

Planned outings for 2023 include:

  • Initial outing at Singing Creek in February—explore trails, observe breeding amphibians, woodcock watch, etc.
  • Spring wildflowers and fall monarchs at Aylor Hollow
  • Ponds at Eldon Farm
  • Solar and lunar viewing with telescopes on Red Oak Mountain
  • Hike to first peak, Oventop Mountain
