Pre-Teen and Teen Adventure Camp

Pre-Teen Adventure (Entering Grades 5-6)     
Teen Adventure  (Entering Grades 7-9)
All links on this page pertain to BOTH Camps.

Pre-Teen and Teen Adventure Camps are designed to strengthen decision-making skills, encourage social responsibility, and team work through challenging and fun character-building experiences.  The pre-teen and teenage years are an important time in a child's life as they learn to make decisions on their own and come to understand some of the impact of their own actions.
