Summer Camp Program Foundations
Challenge By Choice
The freedom to back off from participation – but not an invitation to opt out! We facilitate participants to stay within their growth zone and to expand their possibilities in a welcoming safe atmosphere.
We learn by doing. Leaders facilitate experiences in an atmosphere of safety and fun where everyone has an opportunity to explore the natural world around them.
We strive to create opportunities where we can all recreate together as a community.
Low participant-to-staff ratios
Supervision and risk management are top priorities.
Supervised outdoor free play
Staff provide specific opportunities for youth to play alongside their peers in the outdoors. Using this supervised unstructured time to use their imaginations and explore the natural world.
We appreciate participants for exactly who they are and work to find their strengths. Staff may set the structure, but the participants are active in the process and are valued for their individual skills and talents.
Our programs promote sportsmanship, healthy competition, and playing with heart.
When we play together, we build our community. Exploring neighborhood parks, trails, and open space helps develop strong community-minded citizens.
Industry Standard Training and Protocols
We work hard to ensure our policies and protocols meet or exceed industry safety standards. This includes practices revolving around adventure sports, activities, we facilitate and the training we require our staff to complete. This is not just our job—it is our profession.
