Safety is our number one priority at Martha’s Vineyard Adventure Camp. Emergency and equipment safety procedures are taught before each activity and followed while on the adventure itself. Necessary equipment, including first aid materials, are carried on a daily basis. Staff members are chosen with care from a pool of qualified applicants from all over the United States. Staff has special training, expertise, and certifications in CPR, First Aid, and Lifeguarding. With a staff to camper ratio at 1:6 every participants gets ample one on one attention.
Our mission at Martha’s Vineyard Adventure Camp is to engage 7-14 year-olds in fun, challenging, and adventurous activities within a supportive, educational, and SAFE outdoor environment. Using well-trained, certified, quality staff, and progressive adventures with age-appropriate skills and challenges, we expose campers to the wonders of the Martha’s Vineyard outdoors, while fostering an enduring appreciation of natural exploration.
