The Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs is 45 minutes north of Charlotte, just a few miles from Statesville. With over 700 sprawling acres of gently rolling hills full of oak trees, this property also features spring-fed streams, and is bordered by the South Yadkin River for nearly two miles.
In recognition of the Dale Earnhardt Foundation’s $2 million gift to support the development of the property, the campus is named the Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus to honor the legendary NASCAR driver. With a rich history between Mr. Earnhardt and the property, the Foundation wanted to give back to an organization that shares their philanthropic focus of children, education and environmental preservation.
This unique outdoor property hosts our Overnight Summer Camp, and during the off-season offers heated and air-conditioned cabins for group rental, with the opportunity to participate in bring-your-own tent camping, cooperation courses, hiking trails, archery, all kinds of water activities in our 25-acre lake, and many other programs.
