US National Whitewater Center
If your group wants adventure, exercise, and connection to nature while in Charlotte, you MUST spend some time at the US National Whitewater Center (USNWC).
This 1300 acre recreation ground sits on the Cataba River and allows guests to kayak, mountain bike, take a canopy tour, zip line, rappel, canoe, raft, and over 30 more land and water recreation activities. Not only that, but USNWC also offers instruction and certification programs, regular live events and festivals, races, and summer camps.
When you work up an appetite, which you most certainly will, head over to Rivers Edge Bar and Grill or the Pump House for a bite to eat. If you are lucky, you may just happen to visit during one of their annual festivals filled with great foods and activities, such as the highly popular River Jam Festival.
The center's motto is to 'play, relax, and learn' outside, one we can really get behind, and we know you and your students can too!
*Note, you can also sign your group up for team building activities while here, a great way to allow your students to grow and perfect their teamwork skills!
