Unleashing Discovery

This summer, why not become a rock climber, caver, kayaker, paddle boarder, and explorer in one of the Southeast’s premier summer adventure camp destinations? No previous outdoor experience is necessary, just an adventurous spirit, an enthusiastic attitude, and a willingness to try new things and make new friends. Our staff includes experienced Baylor Walkabout veterans and alumni, Wilderness First Responders, and Whitewater Rescue Technicians, who will all be there to help you pack in a whole new set of experiences for one unforgettable summer camp!

Tennessee’s Outdoor Summer Camp Mecca

Chattanooga’s incredible array of outdoor opportunities makes it the Southeast’s premiere adventure destination. Walkabout summer campers will kayak, canoe and paddleboard through the Tennessee River Gorge, hike to remote waterfalls and swimming holes, rock climb on the world-renown sandstone known as the Tennessee Wall, head underground to explore the vast network of local caves, sleep under the southern stars and experience exhilaration they can’t find anywhere else.

BAYLOR WALKABOUT

For more than 40 years, our after-school Walkabout program has connected students to the outdoors every day after classes and on longer trips throughout the year. While not mandatory (except for the Freshman Trip and Senior Trip), Walkabout can be one of the most demanding activities on campus. To see travel blogs, photos, videos, and more from the afternoon program click here.

Did you know? |
The term “Walkabout” is used by Australian aboriginal tribes to describe a young person’s transition into adulthood through self-discovery in the wilderness.

MEET THE BAYLOR CAMP WALKABOUT DIRECTOR

Bett Adams '02 began his outdoor career on Baylor’s Freshman trip in 1999 when he first sat in a kayak, and has been involved with Baylor Walkabout ever since. In his lengthy career as an outdoor professional, Bett has worked with Middle School aged students in all aspects of outdoor adventure and education, but in the end he’s just a kid at heart who loves the fun and adventure that can only be experienced through summer camp.
