Teen Adventure Camps and Teen Service Programs by Wilderness Ventures

Wilderness Ventures, the worldwide leader in teen adventure camps since 1973, offers several teen adventure camp service opportunities where teens can earn up to 80 hours of community service while participating in many of the fun, substantive, leadership-oriented activities that have made our teen adventure camps so popular for the past 37 years.

US-based Teen Adventure Camps and Teen Service Programs

Our domestic teen service adventures offer a healthy blend of both cultural and environmental service while making the most of these spectacular areas where our teen adventure camps have been operating for the past 37 years by participating in fun, leadership-oriented activities in the greatest outdoor locations of the United States.

Yellowstone Teton Service:

From our home for teen adventure camps in the Teton Mountain Range, we team up with the US forest service to offer an unprecedented teen environmental service program in the greater Yellowstone region. While in the most beautiful backcountry environments on the planet, we’ll roll up our sleeves and help with trail work – learning about the watershed and erosion control techniques that preserve this treasured landscape. In between these teen community service projects, we’ll take time to enjoy the outdoor playground of Yellowstone and the Tetons by whitewater rafting, rock climbing and, of course, seeing teen adventure camp sites like Old Faithful for which America’s first National Park is so famous.

Hawaii Service:

Centered on the “Big Island” of Hawaii – considered the state’s most scenic and most beautiful — we’ll embark on a teen adventure camp filled with both valuable community service and fun teen adventure activities. The Hawaii Service teen adventure camp has the privilege of working with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and Reef Teach for our important conservation and human service projects. Teen adventure campers will also have plenty of fun – learning to surf, sail, whitewater raft and sea kayak this water-sports paradise.

International Service Opportunities and Teen Adventure Camps

Each of our international teen adventure camp destinations are carefully chosen and thoroughly researched to provide the safest, most fun and most immersive teen adventure programs possible. Here is one example of our teen adventure camp destinations that offer unparalled service opportunities in the most breathtaking settings imaginable.

Peru Service:

This extraordinary teen adventure camp offers teen whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and teen hiking programs through the most extraordinarily beautiful environments of Peru – through the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, into the beautiful Andes mountains and onto the floating reed island that are home to the Uros Villagers on Lake Titicaca. This teen community service program visits and lends a helping hand in three remote villages, participating in environmental, educational and cultural service projects.
