Summer Adventure Camp

Adventure has shaped our lives in ways that we are grateful for. We have developed strong passions for being active and challenging ourselves in the outdoors.  Biking, hiking, climbing, paddling--days spent doing these things are days well spent.    Our vision for our summer adventure camp is the creation of a program that will simultaneously serve as a means of introducing the requisite skills for enjoying these activities, a way for existing skills to be sharpened, and something that will provide for greater general fitness (both mental and physical) for the participants.  Experts in outdoor adventure will ensure the safety of the campers while they become equipped in both mind and body to take on the challenge and rigors of serous outdoor adventure.  The confidence, self-knowledge, and fitness gained through participation in this camp will not only pay dividends towards future outdoor adventure ambitions, but will serve participants when they are faced with other life challenges.  In addition, it will serve as a foundation toward an appreciation for life-long wellness.
