Youth Adventure Program - Lodge Based

One Week, Ages 9 - 11 and 12 - 13
Maximum Group Size: 16
Its back! It's tried and true, our Week Long Summer Youth Adventure Camps. From the moment you arrive until the day you leave, you'll be challenged and amazed with a different adventure activity each day. It's fun and exciting.   You'll make new friends, and perhaps meet up with some old friends as well.

Camps based out of COE with one night in the Back Country


During the week of camp you will be having adventures in:

·                  Rock Climbing and Rappelling

·                  Rafting

·                  Mountain hiking

·                  Overnight Expedition

·                  Kayaking

Wait! that's not all. We still have plenty of daylight, so in the evenings you'll be:

·                  Learning survival skills (shelter building).

·                  Playing "Capture the Flag" or other field games.

·                  Playing Initiative games.

·                  Having campfires, learning star science, and lots more.

When you arrive on day 1, you will meet your instructor and all of the rest of the campers. Just to get you going, we may take you down to the lake for a swim test (lifejackets may be worn) to get you ready for kayaking. After dinner, a hike around the area and playing some games will round off the day. 
Each day we get up pretty early, to get a head start. We do a bit of stretching and exercising to get your appetite going so you'll eat a big breakfast. Pack your lunches and you're off on your adventure. When you get back to the COE at night, you'll be pooped, but after a delicious supper, you'll be ready to go again.
Come on out and get a "TASTE" of adventure on one of our Summer Youth Adventure Programs!
