Adventure Camp Activities

Mountain Biking

This course will help your child excel in mountain biking regardless of their current skill level.  They'll progress from basics on shifting and breaking to learning how to get over obstacles, handle ascents and descents, and how to fall safely.

 

Team Building

Outdoor activities tend to be more individually driven and team building exercises help remind children to take responsibility for the well-being of those around them. 

 

 

Paddling

Children will experience the thrill of paddling on the scenic waters of the Saluda River.  Our experienced instructors will teach stroke and steering techniques, along with other basic paddling skills.

 

Arts and Crafts

Children will learn to think outside the box as they use natural materials to create magnificent works of art. 

 

Outdoor Education

Children will participate in mini-lessons on first aid, wildlife, trees, wilderness survival, and orienteering.  The knowledge gained in each of these lessons will be incorporated into the day's activities.

 

Hiking

Along the hiking trail the children will get the opportunity to connect with their natural surroundings.  With the use of binoculars, they will search for wildlife and identify trees.  Compasses and maps will help them find their way on the trail.
