Adventure Camp: Into the Great Outdoors

Washington Park – Adventure Camp

Our Adventure Camp transports 2nd – 7th graders out to local settings for authentic outdoor experiences. Whether they’re returning or first-time campers, every day is a different adventure—mastering mountain biking, stand up paddleboarding, hiking a trail, paddling a canoe or kayak—and every activity is leveled to their age and ability.

Grouped by grade, campers build confidence and skills when they return to our program week after week and year after year. 2nd – 4th graders concentrate on getting comfortable with new activities, with plenty of support from our staff and returning campers. Once they reach 5th – 7th grade, campers shift their focus to teamwork, mentorship and broadening their technical competence.

Led by our highly credentialed outdoor instructors, campers develop the know-how and self-assuredness that launch them into a lifetime of exciting outdoor adventure.

Whether they’re first-time bikers or regular riders, we get campers familiar with biking technique, safety and equipment (plus some bicycle maintenance basics) out on local trails. Campers can bring their own bikes or borrow from our fleet, which accommodates campers of any size.

Nate Thoreson

I love working with kiddos in the outdoors and in particular, that Mother Nature teaches adaptability. I enjoy showing kids how to change gears when thrown curve balls and help find their own natural path of learning and growing.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blue’s Clues? It was the most successful kids show of all time. Do you remember that book that your child insisted on reading over and over again? How could you forget it. Why was Blues Clue’s so successful and why did your child NEED to re-read that book? Because repetition promotes learning, growth, and empowerment.

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple weeks of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others.

WE TAKE SAFETY SERIOUSLY

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
