Base Camp.

Where every great adventure starts…

Since 1973, Wilderness Adventures has offered programming that taps into the very nature of adventure for students ages 11-20. With expertise in outdoor experiential education, we are excited to share our adventure programming with a younger audience!

We welcome all children to experience the thrill, excitement, and adventure of Wilderness Adventures’ Base Camp.  Our camps operate at a centralized location: in Jackson, at Snow King Mountain, and in Bozeman, coming summer 2021. These sites offer adventure themselves, but we utilize all the surrounding areas to maximize each camper’s experience. 

With our team of proven experts in the camping industry, the program will be unlike anything your campers have done before. Hike, learn target sports, sing songs, do arts and crafts, participate in a Color War and much more! For K – 8th graders, our program will delight the imagination and offer memories that will last a lifetime.

For parents, if you did not experience day camp, you might believe it to be a fun way to provide daycare for your child in the summer. However, great day camps are so much more. They are places where our campers will grow and test their boundaries. They will express their creativity and make new friends. While our program will be FUN, we strive for the curriculum in our program to be based on the 3 core values that guide all other Wilderness Adventures programs: community, leadership, and the natural world.

Campers will be invited to participate in week-long sessions that build off each other. Come for one week to get a taste, or come for all weeks to experience the full adventure of summer at Base Camp. 

Base Camp is technology free! Campers will be too busy making new friends and having fun to be distracted by cell phones, tablets, or other electronic devices. Separating themselves from these devices allows campers to grow in the skills needed for the 21st century: critical thinking and problem-solving, creativity and innovation, and communication and collaboration.
