Program Options

The Summit Package

$250 per person
+ plus additional ammunition fees if choosing the barrels.

  • The Big Zip

    • The Zip venue at The Summit features over five miles of zip lines that carry patrons through the trees and over the Summit for high speed challenges.

  • The Barrels (additional cost per person for ammunition)

    • The best sporting clay course in the country? That’s right. Right here at the Summit. Sixty acres is plenty of room for increased safety and well over 100 stations.

  • The Bows

    • You’ve never seen archery quite like this! The Summit will feature traditional training with bows, but you will be able to try something completely new: sporting arrows. Much like the shotgun sport, this archery activity will challenge you!

  • Mountain Biking

    • At the mountain biking Adventure Area in Adventure Valley you can try your new skills on a world-class series of biking trails. Too bad you won’t have time to ride them all in one experience – because there’s over thirty miles of them!

  • The Rocks

    • The New River Gorge climbing scene offers climbs to match the skills of all comers. We’ve recreated that same experience at The Rocks, a combination of nature and ingenuity that brings the best of the gorge right on site at the Summit. This is man-made climbing, but you might not realize it if we didn’t tell you. Built by the best in the business to blend in with the West Virginia terrain, get ready to boulder, climb and rappel at the Summit.

The Youth Package

$150 per person .

Six activities to experience

  • Outdoor Games

  • Fishing

  • Conservation Hike
