Adventure Camps for 10-13 year olds

Children in this age group are ready for more independence! They are ready to take on more challenges and they are beginning to apply their knowledge and make real life connections. To stimulate and encourage their development during this period of their life, our camps focus on boosting their confidence by visiting new locations, meeting new people, introducing new concepts, and nurturing their curiosity to learn.
