Girls' Adventure Camp Wash Park - 8th to 9th - Day Camp

At Girls’ Adventure Camp, entering 8th and 9th graders dive into adventure sports and activities designed to spark personal growth, all set in the great outdoors. Over the course of five days in an encouraging, girls-only environment, you’ll master a range of outdoor skills, make new friends and discover all the amazing things you’re capable of.

Every day brings a different fun, exhilarating experience—rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking—and an opportunity to push your limits, whether you’re a first-time adventurer or an experienced athlete. You’ll also take on non-sports activities designed to help you identify your own best self, coming away with strategies for facing adversity, communicating honestly, resolving drama and embracing every part of your personality. You’ll learn a ton about who you are—and feel empowered to be that person.

After a week with our inspiring instructors, surrounded by a supportive community of girls, you’ll crack open a whole new well of confidence, fortifying you for a successful school year and lots of adventures yet to come.

I love to work with kids because they bring such high energy and passion for learning new activities and skills. It’s inspiring for me to see kids leap headfirst into a new thing, even when it’s hard or scary. When a kid is truly and fully absorbed with something it’s unlike anything else. To be able to take what I love in the world and try to present it in a way where it gets kids equally excited is one of the great joys of choosing to work with children. My favorite outdoor adventures are climbing, skiing, mountain and road biking, and hiking. A few of my big adventures have been climbing South Six Shooter in Moab, Skiing in Japan, and mountain biking in redwood forests. I’m also hoping to climb every 14er in Colorado before I turn 30. I love working for Avid4 Adventure because I get to see children develop a love for the same outdoor activities that I do. I also get to see my friends and coworkers have a blast hanging out with kids and helping them get stoked about nature.

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.


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.
