Walk-A-Bout is designed as a stepping stone for campers who are seeking to further their outdoor skills. Walk-A-Bout is more in-depth than our Voyager program but less rigorous and demanding than our Adventure Camp.
Campers ages 12 to 14 will participate in daily adventures, both on and off site, to help prepare them for a one-night overnight camping trip that takes place during the second week of the session. Campers interested in the Walk-A-Bout Camp must be able to handle the rigors of the pre-set activities. This might include, but is not limited to, the following: carrying a 30-pound backpack; crawling through dark, narrow spaces; and being able to bicycle five or more miles. Walk-A-Bout is open to 12 campers per session and follows our day camp schedule every day, with the exception of the overnight.
Registration for Walk-A-Bout Camp for returning campers opens March 29, 2017, at 9 a.m.
Registration for Walk-A-Bout Camp for new campers opens March 31, 2017, at 9 a.m.
