Recreation is a huge part of life at YHC, with a campus located in the southern Appalachian Mountains, nestled between the Chattahoochee, Cherokee and Nantahala national forests.

Students have immediate access to rock climbing, backpacking, kayaking, canoeing and other exciting outdoor opportunities. The Appalachian Trail is only 15 minutes from campus, and a short drive leads to stunning mountain peaks, exhilarating whitewater rivers, and crystal-clear lakes.
