ADVENTURE PROGRAM 2014

Ages 10 - 17, entering grades 6 - 12
Adventure Camp

July 7 - 11, 9 am - 3 pm  •  August 4 - 8, 9 am - 3 pm / $325 per week
Adventure Camp emphasizes the empowerment of the individual as a member of a larger group, or community. Skills which relate directly to the concepts of teamwork and leadership will be practiced using fun multidimensional exercises, by all campers and stressed by instructors daily. Through the completion of a variety of ground,low ropes and high ropes activities, campers will learn to more effectively communicate with their peers, begin to understand the importance of trust as it relates to community living, and begin to realize who they truly are as a person by testing or coming to know their personal limits. Emphasis on the above skill set—the foundation of basic teamwork skills—will continue during the Paintball portion of this camp (two half days per week). Although all campers will be strongly encouraged to participate in all activities, they will not be forced to do so—as the instructors of the camp firmly believe in the concept of Challenge by Choice.

Lifelong Adventure Camp - Phase 1
July 14 - 18, 9 am - 3 pm / $375 per week
This first phase of the camp focuses on activities — Kayaking, Rock Climbing, Hiking, Surfing and Paddle boarding—that any person can participate in for their entire life. All activities require a certain level of physical fitness and fearlessness, and a willingness to simply do the best you can do. There is no one to compete against and success is determined on an individual basis.

Lifelong Adventure Camp - Phase 2
July 28 - August 1, 9 am - 3 pm / $375 per week
This second phase of the camp will focus on activities based on living life in the outdoors. Campers will be introduced to basic camping and backpacking skills and also the premises and practices of sustainable daily living—things such as organic farming, herbology, and other activities based in the concept of being self-reliant. The week will end with a demonstration of the skills they acquired during an overnight stay in the woods (at St. Andrew’s School) where campers will be responsible for setting up and maintaining a campsite.

Paintball Camp
August 4 - 8, 9 am - 3 pm / $375 per week
This camp will emphasize the positive aspects of the game  by teaching sportsmanship, team work, and effective communication skills, while also improving individual activity-based skills.  These skills will be practiced daily on the playing field and their importance to the game, as well as in everyday life, will be stressed.  The “battles” enjoyed by campers will be naturally competitive, but lighthearted and fun by design – as this camp is meant to be recreational and enjoyable to all who attend.  As paintball is an active “sport”, campers will benefit in many ways from their participation in intense physical activity on a daily basis.
