Middle School Adventure Camp

Middle School Adventure Camp for Summer 2019

This summer we will have ONE fun, exciting (and yes, educational) summer camp geared toward middle school students. River’s Journey is the theme this year, and camp will take place during the week of June 17-21. 

The focus of our middle school adventure camp is focused on understanding our environment better.  Middle school campers do this through hiking, climbing, river exploration, wildlife observations, and team building. Campers end their week with an overnight camping trip.  This camp is a favorite for middle schoolers.

The 2019 middle school camp is full, and registration is closed.  Be sure to sign up for our monthly newsletters so you get plenty of notice for our 2020 camps.
