Our instructors are educators and adventurers with impressive credentials – – but what you’ll love most is how they connect with your kids, inspiring them to explore, grow, and thrive outdoors. In fact, Avid instructors are the #1 point of positive feedback from parents of campers.
We are able to recruit and retain world-class outdoor educators because we are committed to paying a Living Wage for our seasonal staff. Living Wages are expected to increase more than 25% in 2022, and we stand by our commitment.
Campers get access to top of the line gear that is specifically sized for kids: bikes, stand up paddleboards, kayaks, and climbing gear. Each summer, our gear is brand new or previously gently used.
We do the hard work so your kids can have access to beautiful recreation areas such as parks, trails, mountains, and waterways for authentic outdoor adventures. We obtain the necessary permits, and we safely transport kids to the recreation areas. We utilize brand-new shuttle vans each year, and instructors driving shuttle vans must complete Defensive Driver training before the start of summer camp.
