So, you’ve heard about Avid4 Adventure and are thinking of signing your child up for the program. Yet, like any good parent, you want to do your homework first. When you visit the Avid4 website, the first thing you see are smiling children outdoors. They are clearly having fun and doing adventurous things. However, is that really what camp is like? Actually, it’s more! If you’re considering sending your child to camp, here's what a day in the life of your child at Avid4 day camp would look like.
When you read about the other summer day camps that Avid4 offers, they sound pretty self-explanatory. Rock climbing campers go rock climbing. Those signed up for whitewater kayaking or SUPing go paddling. But what exactly is survival skills camp? Quite simply, it’s about empowering kids to not only feel comfortable outdoors, but to thrive there as well. Plus, survival skills camp teaches campers how, with some knowledge, they can create their own tools and solve problems. Here’s everything you need to know about survival skills camp at Avid4 Adventure.
For many of us these days, taking and sharing pictures is a natural part of our daily routine. And the desire to take great photos only heightens when you're with your family are on an exciting adventure in the picturesque outdoors! We all want to capture that perfect picture of our kiddo sending it off of a jump on a mountain bike, paddling a speedy turn in a kayak or climbing to the top of a rock wall.
First, we'll start with why. At Avid4 Adventure, we are on a mission to get kids outside. Beyond that, we want to empower kids to choose an active, outdoor lifestyle. Whether it's the magnetic pull of technology and screens, busy parents and guardians, or accessibility issues like living in a city or being part of an underserved population, we know that kids are spending less time outdoors than ever before. School budgets also continue to get slashed meaning extracurricular programs like physical and outdoor education are the first to go. While you may be thinking it's the norm for kids to grow up playing outside and exploring the outdoors, the reality is, that's just not the case. However, it's our mission to change that.
