The Benefits Of Teen Adventure Camps

By Wilderness Adventures June 25, 2014

Summer camps have been around for many years, but adventure camps have recently gained more attention and popularity. With a Wilderness Adventures teen adventure camp, not only do we combine our love of teaching others, but we also share the importance of the great outdoors and the variety of adventures this wonderful world can offer.

In case this reason is not enough to convince you, here are several other ways an adventure camp can benefit your teen:

  • Provides ample opportunities for adventure and exploration. Whether it be surfing the Pacific Ocean, rafting the Hudson River Gorge, or hiking the island of Hawaii, there is an adventure waiting for you.
  • Development of lifelong relationships with the people you share your experiences with.
  • Develop a connectedness to nature, and also learning to appreciate what the great outdoors has to offer.
  • Learning to take positive risks.
  • Increases your physical ability, which in turn, increases your health benefits.
  • Provides you with several opportunities for new adventures as well as the potential to develop a lifelong hobby in such activities like kayaking, hiking, and bicycling.
  • The ability to learn safe outdoor living skills, such as trip planning, backcountry travel, and minimum impact camping.
  • The ability to engage with others and become a leader amongst your peers. Not only are you a valuable contributor to your small group of peers, but you will also gain a sense of self-confidence, self-reliance, and independence.
  • The opportunity to learn about other cultures. When taking an international adventure, you will be offered with once in a lifetime adventures, as well as opportunities to help serve communities in other parts of the world.
