Age Requirements

Camp Adventure is for 8 to 12 years olds. Age requirements have been established to safely facilitate age-appropriate activities. Camp Adventure is very active and campers need to be mature enough to be on the go all day.


Campers are grouped by age, and we do our best to honor requests to be with friends. We will not group campers together where there is an age gap. You can request to be with particular friends on the camper application.
