Intro to Adventure Summer Camps!
Our Intro to Adventure Summer camps program is designed to help share our passion for sports with the broader community in partnership with the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. The camps were developed to provide an opportunity for youth to try out new activities, or improve their skills with the help of our experienced team. The Intro to Adventure program exposes campers to different sports with the objective to help them find a new passion and experience new things. In 2017 we included mountain biking and rock climbing as well as a highline course to expand campers comfort zones and push them to try new things.
We do not have our 2018 schedule arranged yet, but if you are interested in more information please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to our mailing list to receive more information about the camps for Summer 2018. We will be adding a third exciting sport to the camps and will have information available once we have details confirmed.
All proceeds from the Intro to Adventure program are invested back into Elevation Outdoors to provide an opportunity for other young people in our community to access outdoor recreation programs. Elevation Outdoors strives to create opportunities for all young people to develop a passion that can keep them healthy and happy for life.
Campers are introduced to the sport of rock climbing at a local climbing gym. Campers will learn how to belay, rope climb and boulder in an indoors environment. In the afternoon we then go outside for a hike to check out some of the local climbing zones so they can see where the sport can take them.
Campers will be introduced to the joys of mountain biking. In the morning we will introduce the campers to biking with a lesson from a certified PMBI instructor. This will include some skill development lessons to ensure everyone is comfortable on their bike and ready to tackle some off-road terrain. After the morning lessons, campers will have an opportunity to put their skills into practice on some of the great local trails. Bikes and helmets are provided for any campers that do not have their own. If bringing your own bike we recommend single or double suspension bikes as we will be on trails with varied terrain.
