Our Adventure Day Camp Instructors lead 5-day outdoor adventure camps for 4th – 8th grade students in the summer months. They work with two assistant instructors to plan, organize and lead outings in various outdoor pursuits, including hiking, stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing, rock climbing, and mountain biking. Thursday is our overnight trip, which often involves canoe-camping on the Wisconsin or Kickapoo Rivers.
