Junior Adventurers (Ages 10-12)

ACA Accredited. Welcome to Junior Adventurers! This camp is perfect for the child who is ready to forego the songs & dress up days of Camp Discovery and get a glimpse of field-trip fun of Adventure Unit!

Participants will experience great trips together with the Adventure Unit (ages 12-15), yet still develop relationships with fellow campers their age. At this pivotal time of character development, campers will enhance leadership skills, use teamwork every day, and be reminded that it's fun to be silly! Due to the high adventure nature of a number of our trips, participants are expected to be responsible for behaving in a responsible, respectful, and mature manner.

*PLEASE NOTE*


 

Camp will be held at Wapping Parks & Recreation Facility
