Is there an adventurer inside of you waiting to be released? Do you get excited about sleeping in a tent, climbing a towering rock or paddling down a river, but don’t have much experience? Base Camp could be just the adventure you’re looking for; consider it “Outdoor Adventure 101.” At Base Camp, you’ll participate in many of camp’s most exciting activities while spending your nights at our Outpost camping area. You’ll cook food over the fire, sleep in hammocks and tents, and learn the basics in a variety of outdoor adventures.

Half of the day will be spent like a normal camp week, while the other half you’ll learn different skills for outdoor adventures. You’ll learn the basics of canoeing, climbing, backpacking, mountain biking and wilderness exploration without missing the major events taking place at camp that week!
