Where every great adventure starts…
For over 45 years, 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 proud to announce that in the summer of 2017 we will expand our adventure programming to a younger audience!
Introducing Jackson’s newest summer day camp – Base Camp
This summer, we welcome all children to experience the thrill, excitement, and adventure of Base Camp, Wilderness Adventures’ newest program at Snow King Mountain. Utilizing one of Jackson Hole’s greatest assets and best playgrounds, Snow King Mountain, we look forward to making the summer a magical one for campers and parents alike.
With our team of proven experts in the camping industry, the program will be unlike anything your campers have ever done. Hike in Grand Teton National Park, climb through the trees at Snow King, learn archery, sing songs, do arts and crafts, participate in Jackson Hole’s only Color War and much more! For 1st – 5th 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 day care 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 that all the curriculum in our programs be based on the 4 tenets that guide all other Wilderness Adventures programs: we are educational, we are forward-thinking, we are a launch pad and we are FUN!
Campers will be invited to participate in week-long sessions that build off each other until the climax of our summer season: Color War week! You can participate in one week or all six!
Base Camp is also 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 students to grow in the skills needed for the 21st century: critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, and communication and collaboration.
