testimonials

"The Sunday before camp my son Enzo and I talked through all the things he would be doing at camp. He told me that he doesn’t like hiking, so I felt a bit anxious as we started camp. When I picked Enzo up from camp after the first day he was so excited to tell me that he loves hiking. All throughout that week, he asked me when he and I could go on our own hike. I’m so happy to share my love of hiking with my son and couldn’t be happier that we found Avid4 Adventure to help introduce him to and explore new activities outdoors. "
