About Camp

This camp is for those looking to get down and dirty while still having the week of a lifetime. Adventure Expedition starts off as a normal day camp, but how normal?

Campers will start with a day of High Ropes Adventure. Counselors will lead campers through our 40 foot, 3 level High Rope Challenge Course where they must traverse, climb, Swing, jump and zip through 18 different challenges. Next, campers will try and conquer all 12 routes up to the top of our 43 foot Terrapin Climbing Tower. Campers will learn how to belay each other which, in return has campers working together and trusting one another.

They will fly 330ft down our Zipline at up to 20mph with their hair blowing in the wind. If that is not enough of a thrill, then the Giant Swing awaits. Campers will be pulled 40ft into the air, and just like that, they will swing and experience 2 G’s of adrenaline while screaming with fear and delight, and that’s just Day One. Day Two entails a 12 mile mountain biking trip on some of the trails that run along the Little Patuxent River and Lake Elkhorn. Campers will eat lunch on the trail while also exploring and cooling off in the Little Patuxent River.

Finally, Adventure Expedition takes a twist. Campers will be dropped off at Patapsco State Park Hilton Area for a 2-day 1-night camping trip. We will provide almost everything needed. Only thing you need to bring is some clothes, sleeping bag and curiosity about the great outdoors. During this trip, campers will learn about the flora and fauna of Patapsco Valley State Park, the Patapsco River, and the Chesapeake Bay Watershed through a hands-on Scales N Tales program ran by the Department of Natural Resources. Campers will also learn proper camp etiquette along with setting up camp, cooking on the trail, first aid, Leave No Trace, orienteering using maps, compasses and themselves, and the history of the Patapsco Valley.

Returning for 2019, Adventure Expedition campers will learn how to paddle, turn, and stop their Kayaks while playing fun games on the reservoir! When we aren’t paddling, the fun continues with tie dye, slip’n sliding, and a tasty picnic.

Campers will also test their accuracy with a bow and arrow under the supervision of our Archery instructor! Campers will receive one-on-one attention while learning the basics of archery with a compound bow!

All camp staff is CPR, First Aide and Wilderness first Aid certified and must pass a Federal Background check. Space is limited to 14 campers between the ages of 12-15 and a minimum of 70lbs.
