In a Nutshell
Our half-day adventure (8:30AM - 1:00PM) engages teens, ages 14 to 16, in a variety of outdoor experiences that are both fun and highly educational. Teen Adventures is a three day program that runs Monday thru Friday with two off days where there is no camp. We do this to try to get the best possible weather for camp days.
Our enthusiastic staff lead campers on mountain biking, kayaking, and rope course adventures. Frisbee golf, jumping off "Jaws Bridge" and creative competitions are just a few of the other activities included that suit their interests.
Throughout each day, campers learn about the different ways in which we all impact our environment and about how they can "leave no trace" when enjoying our natural world. Not only do they enjoy learning about the plants and animals of Martha's Vineyard, they also have a chance to get exercise, make friends, and try something new!
Dates: Monday - Friday all Summer Long (3 days total each week)
Time: 8:30am - 1:00pm
Experience Mountain Biking by traveling on the rustic bike trails in the State Forest
Once the bikes are fitted, safety and basic skills are established, the true excitement begins at the entrance of the 4,343-acre State Forest. Here, students will experience vast terrain opportunities ranging from dirt to sand to paved trails to single track and more. The combination of adrenaline, learning, and sweeping vistas makes this an unforgettable day!
Launch into a day of paddling in Sengekontacket Pond and take a leap off the “Jaws Bridge.”
Beginning with an introduction to paddling strokes and kayak safety, the adventure is ready to commence in Sengekontacket Pond. Embarking on a variety of water obstacle courses and challenges, like kayaking ultimate frisbee, allows us to test our skills. Once comfortable and looking savvy, the group will reach the “Jaws Bridge.” Here people can choose to take the plunge or explore the vast amount of marine life.
Fly through the air on the high-rope, work as a team on the low-rope and climb the tower, there is something for everyone.
We start the day by preparing with team building games and activities. Then we head to the challenge where each camper will choose what they feel most comfortable doing. Whether it going for the swing shot or climbing to the top of the climbing wall or just playing around on the elements a foot off the ground, this day has something for everyone. With certified instructors and top of the line equipment each person will feel safe at all time.
