adventure weeks

During the Summer Adventure Weeks, youth will spend a week building foundational skills and developing confidence in the chosen activity: rock climbing, backpacking, paddling or a mini primitive skills intensive. Students will learn safety, terminology, and advanced skills needed to participate in each adventure while enjoying time with new friends in the outdoors.  By the end of the adventure week, youth will have gained safety awareness, outdoor stewardship, confidence in themselves, and the ability to continue pursuing the adventure sport in the future.
