New trip dates: August 10-17, 2021

Now with great excitement we invite you to an adventure of a lifetime

KSA’s Blue Ridge Mountains Adventure

Why has KSA chosen to adventure at the Blue Ridge Mountains?

Because of freedom. 
Because it is where civil war battles were waged.
Battles inspired by the words ”We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”
Because among the glorious landscapes of the blue ridge mountains we feel free.
