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 five day program that runs Monday thru Friday.
Our enthusiastic staff lead campers on mountain biking, kayaking and standup paddleboarding (SUP), rope course adventures, camp olympics and a beach day. Frisbee golf, snorkleing 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!
