Summer Camp for ages 15-17: While traveling through some of Virginia and West Virginia's premier adventure and recreation areas, you will enjoy our most popular adventure activities while completing instructional sessions in outdoor leadership. Among the leadership classes included are: First Aid and CPR certification, Leave No Trace certificate, belay training, and basic trail-work techniques. As you assume a greater level of responsibility within the group, your leadership skills will improve and your group will continue to grow as a team. Group leaders use both formal and informal discussions to help you discover the qualities and traits needed to develop successful leadership skills. Along the way you'll participate in challenging and exciting adventure activities including mountain biking, white-water kayaking, and sea kayaking along the New River, backpacking through the Blue Ridge Mountains, and rock climbing and white-water rafting in the New River Gorge of West Virginia. While in the New River Gorge area we do a Service Project in association with the New River Alliance of Climbers & the National Park Service. Join us for this amazing 28-day adventure!
