Each of our daily adventures is designed for campers with all different levels of experience and athletic ability. Our promise is that each camper will return home with a smile on their face after fun, rewarding experiences on land and in water.

Starting June 20th, small group day camp experiences will run weekly through the summer. There will be two age groups the Explorers (7-9) and Navigators (10-12).  Age groups are limited to 12 campers each and will be operated in accordance with local, state, and city CDC guidelines. All camps are 100% outdoors and are focused on having fun and learning through outdoor adventure sports.

Our Summer Camp Programs are built on 4 key principles:

Challenge by Choice

Campers can choose their own level of risk-taking and will be supported by our staff and fellow campers to go beyond what they ever thought possible.

Take a Break from Technology

Getting outside into nature and away from technology will reduce stress, spawn creativity, and enhance happiness. It’s scientifically proven!

Build Community

Make new friends, feel a sense of belonging, and accept people for all of their unique, wonderful qualities.

Foster Emotional Intelligence

Self-Awareness, Emotional Regulation, Empathy, Personal Motivation, and Social Skills will be learned and practiced at camp.
