TRANSYLVANIA COUNTY, N.C. -

Two people were injured in a single vehicle crash involving a camp van in western North Carolina Monday.

The passenger van carrying eight kids and two counselors crashed on Forest Service Road 475B, also known as Headwaters Road, in the Pisgah National Forest in Transylvania County.

Staff with Success Oriented Achievement Realized, or SOAR, tell 7 On Your Side one camper and one counselor were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.  They've since been released.

The campers were on their way to a rock climbing trip when the 21-year-old counselor who was driving pulled to the side of the road to let another vehicle pass.  Investigators say the van was too close to the edge of the road and rolled over the side.

Camp officials say the driver had passed a course required by SOAR in order to drive camp vehicles.

No charges will be filed.

According to SOAR's website, the camp hosts preteens, teens and adults with learning disabilities and attention deficit/hyperactive disorder.
