These days, a lot of kids grow up surrounded by screens. They’re disconnected from the natural world, and from the joy of authentic adventure. At Avid4 Adventure summer camps in Colorado, California, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington, we introduce kids to the power of the outdoors. Our mission is to empower kids of all ages and skill levels to choose active, outdoor lifestyles.
Our instructors are educators and adventurers with impressive credentials—but what you’ll love most is how they connect with your kids, inspiring them to explore, grow and thrive outdoors. “The counselors are older and have so many skills, like safety and first aid training. The difference from other camps is significant.” – Amanda Prentiss, camper parent
There’s no substitute for the real thing. We transport kids to nearby crags, trails and bodies of water to adventure in authentic settings and discover local recreation areas they (and you) can keep coming back to.
Our camps teach kids to assess their environment and approach risks intelligently, building a foundation of confident, sound judgment they can use in the outdoors—and throughout their lives.
I knew my daughter was nervous about stand up paddleboarding on the river It was amazing when she came home absolutely giddy from her experience.
My son was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Before camp, a nurse from Avid called to discuss how their team could support my son and to calm my worries.
With each sport my daughter masters comes a new level of confidence and a new level of joy. And for an adrenaline sport junkie like QiuQiu, learning the safety techniques and routines from day one is essential.
