Our Mission:Summer camp is the perfect setting in which children can grow and flourish. At Camp Adventure, campers create lifelong friendships in a compassionate and accepting environment, while learning how to challenge themselves and gain self-confidence.
Being a camper at Camp Adventure is an experience that one will always remember. Your children will look forward to each day with anticipation and excitement! We have created a warm and personable camp environment, where every child feels special. It has been our philosophy that each child would learn something new while having a blast doing so. The quality of our counselors , variety of activities, and small groups are the keys to happy and enthusiastic campers. Over the years we have developed a total program that is creatively planned to ensure each child explores all of their talents. From our theater program to gardening to our recycled arts and crafts, the children have no time for plugged in play. Our in house workshops, exciting special events; like our bake sale for charities and our weekly trips, encourages kids to embrace new experiences and learn new skills. While we have daily activities planned we are always looking to the children for new ideas . Each day we encourage the children to come up with new activities for every camper to participate in. If they have an idea, we discuss it as a group and take their creativity to new heights. We develop a supply list, create rules and turn their ideas into reality! Our older kids have hand made games and activities and put together a carnival for our younger students. Some of our athletic children have spent the day teaching others a new skill. Our local teens come on site and show our children new crafts and games. We empower our campers so not to see them sitting around all day unenthused. Most days when parents arrive to pick their child up, they don't want to leave! Some of these ideas have inspired our weekly camp themes . Camp Adventure allows the children's imaginations to take flight, interests are discovered, skill sets are improved, friendships are made, and campers can soar…
We are very proud of our program and are blessed to be able to inspire children. We are so excited to present our new themes for this year. We are looking forward to working with all our campers this summer!
