Our Mission:

To create a physically and emotionally safe learning environment where individuals can find harmony and empowerment through self understanding, self confidence, simple living, friendships and fun.

Our Method:

Our philosophy is based on Confucius' observation: “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”  Buffalo Cove's programs are experiential by design. We learn by doing, and we know others do too. We get dirty, we get wet, we get scratches, we get frustrated, we get excited, and we gain so much wisdom in the process.

Our Pillars:

At camp, participants become part of a community where respect is always emphasized. Respect is tied into every lesson and part of our daily life:

Respect ourselves.

Respect our community.

Respect the land.


More information about our history is coming soon!

Buffalo Cove is a 200-acre valley located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of northwestern North Carolina at the headwaters of the Yadkin River and just 12 miles south of Blowing Rock.

For me, Buffalo Cove has always been a place of friendship, learning, and growth. There is really no better place for the nature lover, the thrill seeker, or someone wanting to be a part of a strong and loving community.
