Don Lee's Coastal Communities and Common Ground programs offer a variety of experiences for your School Group.



Opportunities abound for students and teachers to experience Don Lee Camp & Retreat Center through our school based experiential education programs. In the spring and fall, a variety of hands-on, interactive education programs are offered for groups of students to participate in for a day, or up to five days. Our ideal, coastal setting on the Neuse River Estuary offers groups a unique opportunity to learn through experiential education.



An Adventure/Challenge Curriculum Designed to Build Community and Teamwork Common Ground is Don Lee Camp & Retreat Center’s low-element challenge course program for school groups, scouting troops, church groups, and community organizations. This program utilizes the activities of the challenge course experience and pulls together an opportunity for students to work together to gain understanding of cooperation skills and teamwork concepts.
