Adventure Camp

Action-packed days filled with adventure will give your child a new experience remembered for years to come.

Choose from three life experiences uniquely designed for physical and intellectual challenges.
    In the course of a thrilling week, your children will gain confidence in their abilities while having a blast on bikes, hiking in the woods, riding river tubes and in our adventure park. Campers embark each day on a different adventure, learning new outdoor leadership skills and stepping naturally outside their comfort zones on our one-of-a-kind Challenge Course as they traverse and conquer all three levels of our 40-foot High Ropes Challenge Course. They will test their strength and courage on our 43-foot Terrapin Tower, with 12 different ways up and down including two rock walls, cargo nets, rope ladders and tires, and our gravity-defying Rainbow Serpent, a 40-foot upside-down crawl to the ground.
    After all the climbing, campers leap off our 330-foot-long zip-line, soaring up to 20mph while flying through the woods. If that’s not enough of a thrill, our Giant Swing awaits. Here, campers are pulled up to 40 feet to swing and endure 2 Gs of force while screaming with excitement, fear and delight. Then they enjoy a 40-foot leap off the Terrapin Flyer.
    We provide the gear; you provide the enthusiasm and excitement.
    Small sessions and the highest quality personalized instruction ensure both safety and fun.
    Weekly sessions from June 20 through August 1 for 24 campers, grouped as juniors, eight to 10 years old (campers must weigh at least 70 pounds), and seniors, 11 to 14.
    Parents will appreciate:
