“Wow! After experiencing the Terrapin Challenge my niece and nephew were hooked! I enrolled them in the summer adventure camp and both kids (ages 11 and 14) loved every single minute. The counselors were engaging and fun (funny!) and made the experience — camping, archery, kayaking, games, crafts, mountain biking — unforgettable for them. Both want to participate again next summer. Appreciate the wonderful pictures the staff took during their adventures.  They’ll have this to treasure and remind them of one of their best childhood memories!” — Michelle

“I just picked up my son , Alex, from the last day of camp and want you to know he had a FANTASTIC time. The activities each day were fun and all of the counselors were wonderful. He came home sweaty, dirty, exhausted and happy every day and is ready to return next year. This was everything I want in a summer camp program for an 11 year old boy. Thanks to everyone at Terrapin Adventures for running a great camp.” – Kathy Lawler

Our nine-year-old son had a fantastic experience with Ultimate Adventure Camp.  It was everything we wanted for him – a day camp that teaches outdoor leadership skills and environmental values, and it was close to home.  It really was an adventure and a valuable learning experience for our son, who loved each activity more than the next, from zip-lining to wall climbing to floating down the river.  He couldn’t wait to go back each day, and this year we’ve signed him up for three weeks.  When I asked him if he might get bored at the same camp for three weeks, he said, “Mom, you can’t get bored when you’re having the time of your life.”  Thanks for your excellent staff, facilities, and summer camp programming.  We’re already looking forward to it again” – Laura
