YHC Outdoor Adventures


It’s not an exaggeration to say that Young Harris College students can spend every weekend outdoors and never do the same thing twice. Fishing, camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, swimming—there are endless ways to find fun and fresh air. As part of the YHC Outdoor Adventures program, students are familiarizing themselves with their home in the north Georgia mountains.
