Outdoor Adventures is a unique tripping program for kids who can’t get enough of action-packed outdoor adventure activities!  Campers take daily excursions to some of the best action-packed destinations in our local area.  One day, campers could be learning to rock climb, the next they could be surfing at a local beach.  

Wherever we go instruction and equipment will be provided by trained specialists, alongside our own dedicated Outdoor Adventure counselors.  Please note: each organization we work with may require caregivers to sign a waiver for their child to participate.  This information will be provided to families closer to the week of programming. 

Outdoor Adventures is a 5-day, full-day (9am – 4pm) camp, open to boys and girls entering grades 5 through 7.  Each day Adventurers will leave campus in the morning and will not return until after 3pm each day; camp lunch is not an option for this camp and all Adventurers will be required to come to camp prepared for a full day away from campus.  Late arrivals and early pickups are not available.  Each day we will use a SJP van, driven by our trained and certified camp counselors to transport campers to and from their destinations.
