In today’s uncertain social climate, where change – even upheaval - seems the norm and tradition and dedication is oftentimes discarded in favor of what is convenient or “of the hour”…our faith can be neglected and perhaps even diluted in the fray of the day-to-day, however unintentionally. It is then that a time of refreshing becomes necessary, away from the secular bent, and we heartily seek spiritual, physical and emotional rejuvenation; what better place to shake off that world-weariness and recover your bearings than in a restorative, healthy and inspirational natural setting, in God’s own cathedral: the great, unspoiled outdoors?
Faith tour groups of all sizes in search of such a haven will truly enjoy a stay at secluded and serene Smoky Mountain Christian Village. Ideally located just a few short miles from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Village affords guests an ideal opportunity to base an exciting, entertaining and wholesome vacation itinerary around their stay in clean, cozy and well-appointed mountain chalets, rather than a ho-hum stay around a so-so itinerary.
A few days’ respite at the unique 44 acre, alcohol-free campus and ministry space loaded with recreational opportunities like swimming, horseshoes, basketball, volleyball, a ropes course, paintball, and hiking, as well as downtime spent around a cozy, crackling campfire provides a perfect opportunity for personal reflection and fantastic fellowship, while an array of optional, exciting and challenging daytime family and group adventure packages keep guests on the go from sunup to sundown!
Relax away from the hubbub of noisy airports and the deafening din of downtown traffic knowing your homey cabin with its own spotless propane grill and shining, fully equipped kitchen is just minutes away from great groceries, fantastic shopping and dining, and local attractions and historic landmarks like the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center, Smoky Mountains Ziplines and Canopy Tours, Forbidden Caverns, Dollywood, and Dollywood Waterpark, Christ in the Smokies, Ripley’s Aquarium, Tanger Outlets, The Apple Barn Cider Mill (famous for its wonderful breakfasts, candy factory, and creamery!) the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, the Elkmont and Roaring Fork historic districts, the Great Smokey Mountain Arts and Crafts Community and so much more!
Let Adventure Student Travel do the legwork; all you have to do is show up, unpack, set down your cares, and nestle into the sweet shelter of some of the oldest mountains in the world, where you’re free to explore the rich history and heritage of the region’s distinctive culture and experience the splendor and majesty of some of God’s finest work. Mountain Christian Village’s mission is this: to know Christ and make Him known by providing sacred space for groups and families to enjoy the presence of God and fellowship with one another; pastors are on staff for all your group’s ministry and prayer needs.
