Out-of-Camp Trips

Our camp property is beautiful and it’s surrounded by some of the most majestic forests, rivers, and mountains in the South.

From rafting the Ocoee River to exploring Rock City and the Tennessee Aquarium, DeSoto girls get to experience the stunning natural beauty of Lookout Mountain and the surrounding area. Trip Day is one of the most anticipated events each term!
