testimonials

"As parents of younger children entering camps for the first time this summer, we picked a few camps to try different experiences. Avid for Adventure has by far been the BEST. This is what all camps should strive to be. From day one when we dropped off our children, they set themselves apart by having the instructors welcome us and discussing with us how the week would be and addressing any of our questions. They ensured that our children were comfortable with their new group and quickly started chatting them up and playing games. Throughout the week we got pictures and updates on how our kids were doing. Our children absolutely loved it and have ranked this their favorite camp. Thank you Avid for all you did! This will absolutely rank as one of their favorite camps this summer."
