Back by popular demand – Pat "Big Dog" Torrey

What tricks will Pat "Big Dog" Torrey pull out of his bag this year? You'll have to come to the North Carolina Mountains to find out! A new location means new adventures. The YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly has more on-site activities then any locations we've seen in the past. We'll be staying on the side of a mountain in shaded rustic cabins, and there will be plenty of pool time for those wanting a cool swim.

Hemophilia of North Carolina (HNC) is offering this teen program free of charge. This includes meals, activities and crafts, and lodging at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly with separate facilities for guys & gals.
