Our Mission

The Boone Explorers Club was established in 2015 to encourage local creatives to jump offline and make impact for our community.  Through local meetups and collaboration, we can truly impact the way our community functions for the better.


Western North Carolina has one of the most hidden creative communities in the country - photographers, videographers, graphic designers, painters, and more call this place home. Let’s join explore together and see what adventure is out there!
— Casey Helmick, Founder

Practically this looks like:

  • Weekly Explorer's Club Newsletter inspiring you to get our and explore new things!
  • Monthly Meetups at a local coffee shop (hint: Local Lion is our favorite). 
  • Quarterly Instameets - come along for a photo-based adventure.
  • More details coming soon.
