What are Adventure Camps?
Adventure Camps are a great way for campers, grades 7-10, to explore the Pacific Northwest in a variety of different locations and experience new things. Backpacking, rock climbing, river rafting and exploring the natural setting of the Puget Sound are just a few of the fun activities. We asked Shivver to share with us some of his favorite aspects of our Adventure Camps! Thanks Shivver!
What Makes Adventure Camp Special?
Campers who go on trips get to do extra things beyond what classic campers experience. They learn things like outdoor cooking, map reading, rationing food, and setting up camp. While out on trips, campers help make decisions for the group, and then themselves, which teaches responsibility. Kids are provided the setting to think for themselves, and the opportunity to take charge. They learn what it’s like to care for others by carrying gear, and helping with chores, such as dinner, dishes, and setting up tents. We do amazing, difficult things that build kids into caring, hard working, and dependable people.
“My favorite part of camp is I’m always going somewhere. Both literally and metaphorically. There’s always something going on, and something to learn.”
