Learning & Adventure

Rich with natural resources, the New River Gorge makes for a perfect outdoor classroom. Immerse yourself and your children in our environment, enjoying new experiences — such as rafting, hiking, rock climbing — all while learning about STEM-based programs like hydrology, ecology and geology. Of course, the Gorge also has a number of historical sites that can be added to your educational itinerary.  From our waters to our forests, the teaching opportunities — and adventures — are endless.
