Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs

The Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs is located in Iredell County, just north of Statesville. The property is over 700 acres of gently rolling hills full of large oak trees and has spring-fed streams throughout the land which is bordered by the South Yadkin River. This camp property is currently being built out and recently dedicated to honor the support given to GSHNC by The Dale Earnhardt Foundation and therefore renamed as the Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs. However, girls have plenty to do at the Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs including camping, high & low challenge courses, hiking trails, available cabin units and many other opportunities for girl programming.  Virtual Tour.
