Adventure Camp Burlingame - 2nd to 7th - Camp On The Go

At our Burlingame Adventure summer camp, 2nd – 7th graders venture out to nearby parks, trails, mountains, and waterways for authentic outdoor adventures. Whatever their age or ability level, campers are supported by our instructors to learn new skills every day. Campers will trail hike, kayak, stand up paddleboard, and more—all activities designed to impart new skills and increase their confidence outdoors. Sports will take place at scenic local spots that your family can return to for years to come!

We divide campers into groups by grade range, and our experienced instructors use time-tested techniques to support campers at every ability level, building their confidence, increasing their technical competence and teaching them the lifelong skills of assessing risk and exercising sound judgment.

Camp On The Go is similar to our traditional Day Camps. The big difference is, instead of meeting us at a local school, you’ll meet us directly at a local recreation area for a day of outdoor sports and activities.

*This session is two weeks long.

Stand Up Paddleboarding


Places We Go: Junipero Serra and San Pedro

We take campers out to beautiful local trails teaching them about flora and fauna and the principles of Leave No Trace as they expand their understanding of the natural world.

Places We Go: Foster City Lagoon 

Campers play games and take on fun challenges as they learn the basics of stand up paddleboarding, building strength and skill as they paddle at nearby locations.

Places We Go: Lake Merced

Our kayaking program helps campers grow incrementally more comfortable on the water as they get familiar with their environment and equipment. They learn about water safety and paddling techniques, practicing their new skills at nearby aquatic areas.

Sample Schedule

We've put together a pretty awesome day camp schedule for your kids! Here's a sample:


Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blues 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 Clues 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.


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.
