Swannanoa camp is named for the Swannanoa Gap. About 15 miles from Camp Lurecrest lies the Swannanoa Gap, which served as the one of the primary passes through which early settlers and Indians traveled to reach the Asheville Plateau – the dividing line between the waters that flow to the Atlantic and those that flow to the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico. Because of its strategic location and landscape, it played a significant role in both the Revolutionary and Civil wars.

As of 4/13/23, this session has a moderate waitlist for boys and a long waitlist for girls.

Guest Speaker

Jake Tassy

Jake Tassy is a follower of Jesus, a husband to wife Katie for 25 years, a father to three children (23,19, 16 years old), a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, and a friend. 30+ years of working with families and students as an encourager, teacher, pastor, missionary, mentor, coach, and chaplain. God's journey has taken him into suburban and urban settings in the U.S. and internationally. Sports have been a great platform to learn and grow for him. Jake loves to listen to people's stories. One thing has remained the same: people need to be reminded that the good news of Jesus Christ's work is worth committing to, good, and joyfully lived out. Acts 4:12-13, Proverbs 3:5-6, Micah 6:8, 1 Corinthians 16:13-14, and 2 Corinthians 5 are Bible passages that keep him focused. He loves going on dates with his wife, loves laughing, loves jamming in the car with his kids, loves gummy candy, and loves seeing the "Ah-Ha" moments when God shows up in the lives of people.
