Hi, I'm Jud Millar

I'm passionate about working with young adults in an outdoor setting.  I believe that it's your life, work and education experiences who make you who you are and prepare you to make a positive difference in this world.  


My Parents Pam and Biff started Stone Mountain Adventures (SMA) in 1983 when I was 10 years old.  My early expereinces growing up in rural Central Pennsulvania and as a camper SMA had a profound effect on me and helped instill in me my love for wild places, nature and adventures.

I did a gap year in rual Yorshire, England after high school graduation.  While there I worked in a warehouse and a "petrol station", learned to love playing to game of rugby and attended St John's College in the city of York.  

I attended Elon University in North Carolina where a studied Recreation Management , played Division II Football and helped to found the Men's Rugby Club.

After graduation from Elon University I worked as a Wilderness Insturctor for the North Carolina Outward Bround School. I co-lead 10 day to 4 week trips with multiple elements including backpacking, white water canoing and rafting, rockclimbing and winderness navigation.
