Summer Youth Adventure Programs


Now in our 23rd year, our summer camp programs are better than ever! This year we will be offering a mixture of our favorite trips from the past, and a variety of new adventures for those looking for something different.

A note to parents:
Our summer programs are based on the principle of Character Development and experiential learning (cleverly disguised as adventure activities). Success upon success. Adventure activities can be enjoyed by everyone regardless of fitness levels. All you need is energy, an adventurous spirit, and a small dose of courage in order to participate and enjoy our summer programs. As a group the children will grow and bond together, while different levels of physical skills will expand their comfort zones on a day to day basis. They will be challenged and excited each day while doing the different activities. They will be tired at the end of the day, but will feel that they really accomplished something for themselves, and perhaps helped someone along the way. Now a days, it's just so easy to forget, that when we were kids, life was a lot simpler. We strive to give the kids who come to our summer camp, that simpler life, where they can just do what should come naturally, in the great outdoors.
