Designed for 5th – 6th graders of all experience and ability levels, our weeklong multi-sport expedition camp lets kids explore El Dorado County—one of the most diverse recreation areas in California—taking on a range of adventure sports by day and camping under the stars by night. Located southwest of Lake Tahoe, El Dorado County encompasses Eldorado National Forest among the Sierra Nevada mountain range, featuring extensive trails, lakes, rivers and lush, subalpine trees.
After setting up a campsite that will serve as their home base for the week, campers (no more than 13 to a group) discover what the “multi” in our multi-sport program really means. Namely, embarking on a different adventure every day—biking extensive trails one day, rock climbing the next, plus hiking, stand up paddleboarding, whitewater rafting and acts of environmental service—all the while building technical skills and fostering a deeper appreciation for the outdoors.
From cooking on camp stoves to sleeping in tents, navigating a river to negotiating rocky terrain, expedition campers learn to meet countless challenges with intelligence and poise. It’s a confidence-building, life-changing experience that gives them the skills and independence they need for a lifetime of adventure.
