Vertical Reality

For 9th–12th Graders

At Vertical Reality, students will enjoy a weekend retreat where they can experience God and hang out with friends.  Sharp Top Cove, Camp Woodlands, and Wilderness at the Smokies offers a pool, gym, lake, beach volleyball court, wiffle ball stadium, zip line, and high ropes course—this is not your typical weekend in the mountains. Our goal is for students to grow in their walks with God, while recharging emotionally and relationally.

Girls need to wear one-piece bathing suits (no tankinis, shirts over two-pieces, or one-pieces with the sides cut out). In terms of shirts and shorts: nothing too low, nothing too short!
