Camp Mikell is a ministry of the Diocese of Atlanta, open year round, and provides an inclusive environment for a faith based summer camp for children and youth, as well as conferences, private retreats, reunions, planning, study, and adventure. The Blue Ridge Outdoor Education Center has offered hands-on environmental education for school classes, church groups and others. Mikell’s forests and wetlands provide a natural setting for this program. Mikell’s Adventure Programs include the Team-building Course, High Ropes Course, Climbing Tower, and White Water Rafting. These adventures are perfect for youth or school groups, corporations, scouts, and any other groups interested in challenging themselves physically, emotionally and mentally. St. Anne’s contributes to the Mikell Scholarship Fund to assist those who cannot afford to attend Camp Mikell and to the Operations Fund to help maintain the buildings and equipment and buy much needed supplies.
