Designed for 5th – 6th graders of all experience and ability levels, our weeklong multi-sport expedition camp lets kids explore the diverse and dramatic landscape of Sly Park in El Dorado County, California, taking on a range of adventure sports by day and camping under the stars by night. Located just southwest of Lake Tahoe, Jenkinson Lake serves as the backdrop of this spectacular park. Featuring lush forests, miles of trails, and breathtaking scenery, it’s a perfect spot for adventures.
After setting up a campsite that will serve as their home base for the week, campers (no more than 13 to a group with 2 staff members) discover what the “multi” in our multi-sport program really means. Namely, embarking on an different adventure every day—biking the park’s extensive trails one day, plus standup paddleboarding, kayaking, hiking, white water rafting, and rock climbing — all the while building technical skills and fostering a deeper appreciation for the outdoors.
From cooking their own meals on camp stoves to sleeping in tents, negotiating tough 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.
