Call of the wild!

Our Wilderness Adventure specialty camps (offered at our newest satellite location in Olney, MD) are designed for campers who just love the outdoors! Participants in our Wilderness Adventure camps get the best of both worlds—traditional camp activities with a focus on nature and the outdoors.

“The counselors were so great and really got to know my girls. They both came home exhausted and dirty from the day’s fun activities, which is exactly what we wanted. I wish we had signed up for additional weeks! We’ll be returning next year for sure!”
