At its core, summer camp is all about having fun and making memories. Kids should leave with new friends, lots of great stories, and minimal sunburn. If your camp is looking for new ways to add excitement for your campers, consider the list of adventure camp activities below. These ideas can be implemented in most any location and will be the start of turning your camp into an adventure camp.
Take your campers out of the cabins for a night and rough it in the woods. This could be a short backpacking trip if your camp has that option, or it could be a one night camping excursion on the camp grounds. Teach the kids survival skills like building shelters, starting fires, and signaling for help or focus on teaching leave no trace ethics. Camping outdoors is a great way to introduce kids to nature and teach them new skills.
