Registration for a session must be received by Thursday, the week prior to the session you'd like to sign up for, provided there are still openings.
Our fully trained and First Aid/CPR certified staff will lead the daily adventures. Teens are encouraged to participate to their fullest in each and every week. The program is designed for teens to strengthen their own values, expand personal confidence, encourage them to try new challenges, experience team work and develop group cooperation in a fun, safe and nurturing setting. We will also ask for teen input into the schedules once the expeditions begin.
