Teen Adventure Camp

This adventure program, for teens ages 13-15, will provide them with a more adventurous camp experience with such activities as overnight canoe trips. Teens will have the opportunity to complete our level system, allowing them to become a master of our activities. They will also complete community service projects. This is not a leadership course, but teens will learn leadership skills to prepare them for the future and is a great stepping stone for Teen Leadership Camp. Kids who sign up for Teen Adventure Camp will also participate in the BOLD/GOLD program as part of Teen Adventure Camp.

Camp to me is an opportunity to leave all your worries behind and enjoy life. To make new friends. To explore the things I like. To get to know nature and myself. Camp makes me a better person.
