Adventure Camps

Canadian kids find thrills and spills

Adventure camps offer kids an opportunity to challenge themselves both physically and mentally. Adventure camps can teach young people to push a little harder, reach a little higher and dig a little deeper to master a particular task and learn about teamwork and contribution. Adventure camps offer kids a few thrills and a whole lot of fun.

Whether it is whitewater rafting, rock climbing, skateboarding, a high ropes course or wilderness survival, adventure camps provide kids with more than an adrenalin rush.

Adventure camp is about risk taking and skill development while being supported by experienced and knowledgeable staff and fellow campers. These camps also teach kids how to challenge themselves, while keeping safety in mind. Many of the physical activities require the support of others, so adventure camps foster team-building skills and teach kids to trust in others and to be trustworthy. Adventure camps often appeal to teenagers, who may be looking for greater challenges.

Canadian parents and kids looking for a camp with just a bit more of a thrill should check out Our Kids' listings of adventure camps from across Canada below.
