Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs

The Dale Earnhardt Environmental Leadership Campus at Oak Springs is 45 minutes from Charlotte, north of Statesville. On over 700 sprawling acres of gently rolling hills full of oak trees, this property features spring-fed streams, 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 offers girls seasonalized cabins with heating and air conditioning and the opportunity to participate in bring-your-own tent camping, cooperation courses, hiking trails, archery, a 25-acre lake for swimming and boating and many other programs.
