Kids entering grades 1-7 (ages 6-12/13) join The Mountaineers for week-long adventure full of Mountaineers Activities! Kids will have a chance to try a variety of outdoor activities, which may include: climbing, hiking, kayaking, navigation, photography, outdoor cooking, first aid, shelter building, fire building or basic wilderness skills. Each week has it's own theme - click on each individual week to view the specifics of that week's theme. Each week will include fun games and activities, an earth stewardship component, and outdoor skills development, all led by skilled instructors. While each session allows for plenty of climbing time, we mix up other outdoor skills so that each session, campers get to learn something new! Camp is Monday-Friday from 8:30am-4:30pm. Field trip days may run longer - check with the specific week for more information.
