We are fortunate to offer two very distinct summer programs to youth in middle and high school. Both our Summer Adventure Camp and Leaders in Training offer students a chance to explore and engage with their environment and with each other.
Camp & Youth Leadership
Youth who have visited Project Adventure with a group often ask how they can come back for more. Our Summer Adventure Camp is a one-of-a-kind experience designed to excite, engage, and encourage youth to explore their inner potential through expertly facilitated interactive adventures.
During Summer Adventure Camp, your camper will:
- Exercise valuable life skills, such as setting realistic goals, supporting others and problem-solving.
- Learn technical skills, including climbing, belaying, spotting and knot-tying.
- Make new friends and build a strong camp community through fun games and challenges.
