Adventure Camp

Adventure Camp provides a full day of fun for your school aged child while school is out. We offer two Adventure Camp sites in the Carson Valley, one in town and one in the north valley. We offer trips and/or fun activities every day. You can sign up for the day, the week or the whole summer depending on your needs and schedule!

Who May Attend?

Children ages 5 - 12 who are currently enrolled in Kindergarten - 6th grades.
(Sorry, those who have not yet started Kindergarten or have already started in 7th grade may not attend Adventure Camp.)

Program Hours:

7:00am - 6:00pm Monday - Friday, excluding Holidays

PLEASE NOTE: Camp is not held on Holidays or weekends.


Adventure Camp is $26.00* per child** per day.
Daily fee includes full day of camp (7am - 6pm), transportation to and from destination and entrance into trip venue.
Participants need to bring a sack lunch, water bottle, any needed clothing for the days activity (for example swim suit and towel or socks) and closed-toe shoes for safety.
