Adventure camps listed above offer you the option of fun in the fresh air, within the secure confines of a summer camp environment. If your child is the adventurous type who likes to challenge her or himself and grow through unique experiences and adventures, browse our listings of adventure camps to find one perfectly suited for your needs.

Camps in a wide variety
Not all adventure camps are the same, of course. There are camps offering a variety of activities from wilderness adventures or whitewater rafting to "tamer" pursuits such as canoeing, guided rock climbing, high ropes and obstacles courses. Many of the more adventurous camps require group activities so your child will learn teamwork and develop team-building kills. There is little better way of building character over summer holidays (or even March break) than for your child to throw herself into an adventure-oriented summer camp.

Some other adventure camps you can participate include animal camps, such as camps offered by zoos or conservation areas where children can learn close care of wild animals.

Of course, there are many who argue that all summer camps are, in fact, adventure camps.
