Outdoor Adventure Camp’s “Wild and Wonderful Adventure Days” offers unforgettable outdoor experiences for adventure seeking kids ages 9-14 in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Your child’s adventures will include: White Water Rafting, Tubing, climbing our Aerial Adventure Park, and flying through our Zipline Canopy Tour! All activities are facilitated by our highly trained guides who make it their goal to share their experience and passion for adventure and love for the outdoors. Throughout the session, our adventure camp will provide your child with increased confidence, lifelong memories, and plenty of fun.

 

Start your summer off right with plenty of fun in the sun at River Riders Outdoor Adventure Camp. Each week is packed with tons of Adventure Experience. Campers will become familiar with a wide variety of adventures and be able to hone in on the skills necessary to become experts in each activity. Each week starts out with icebreakers and team building games to get campers comfortable with their counselors and fellow campers. Outdoor Adventure Camp likes to start the morning full force to get everyone energized. Once everyone has arrived for the day, campers will head right to their morning activities. Campers will start their week at our Aerial Adventure Park, followed by a relaxing float down the Shenandoah River. The following days will be jam packed with adventure, education, and fun! On the second day, campers will have the chance to try out our stand-up paddleboards and kayaks at our riverfront Harpers Ferry Campground location after a morning of zipping through the trees on our Zipline Canopy Tour. Campers will also go on an explorative hike of Historic Harpers Ferry,  learning the history of the National Park as well as exploring the area’s flora and fauna. During this hike, campers will have the opportunity to purchase ice cream or a snack, so don’t forget to send them with a few extra spending dollars. After the hike, Campers will participate in one of our most challenging activities, White Water Tubing.  With the help of their counselors, campers will be able to maneuver through the flat water and white water sections of the Potomac River. After completing all of these activities, campers will have a blast with the most adventurous activity of the week: All Day White Water Rafting. Don’t forget to pack plenty of sunscreen and snacks for this day because campers will be on the water having fun all day. The week will end with a fieldtrip to a local amusement park! Depending on the week, they will go to Adventure Park USA (Sessions 3, 5,7 & 9) or Boonsboro Family Rec, (Sessions 2,4,6 & 8).  The week will come to a close with our famous closing ceremony. Parents are invited to come early Friday afternoon for the awards ceremony, pizza, and lemonade.  Campers will be sent home with a souvenir photo from the week so that they will remember the experience for a lifetime.

Outdoor Adventure Camp drop off is from 8:15 am to 9:00 am. Morning activities begin promptly at 9:00 am, so please don’t be late. Each day we break for lunch between 12:15 pm and 1:15 pm, giving campers plenty of time to recharge and refuel before their next activity. Campers will return at the end of the day by 3:45 pm to change into dry clothes and play games with friends and counselors until their departure. Outdoor Adventure Camp pick up is from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm. We are happy to work with the parents of campers who need to be dropped off/picked up earlier than designated drop off/pick up times.
