Outdoor Adventures has overhauled our youth adventure summer camp program. We now offer one week of camp led by OA pro staff for 10-14 year olds. 

Join us next summer  for an adventure-filled week of learning and building outdoor skills. UAF Outdoor Adventures professional staff will guide campers through a week of experiences that will create life long memories, friendships and love for the outdoors. Campers will learn about rock climbing, canoeing, paddle boarding, water safety, basic wilderness first aid, hiking, and much more. We will also focus on being good stewards of the environment by learning about and practicing the principles of Leave No Trace.
