Young Adventurers

Ages 7-9

For over 15 years, Virginia Outside has been running summer camps, teaching youth about the great outdoors and creating lifelong memories for both campers and staff members. Our Young Adventurers Camp was created for our younger campers looking to do more than just fishing! 

This camp offers a variety of activities to introduce campers to the outdoors in a safe and positive way! The kids will spend time fishing, going on nature hikes, making nature crafts, and playing in the river on tubes. One morning they will get a brief break from the heat while they spend a few hours indoor rock climbing at Peak Experiences. Throughout the week they will also participate in interactive outdoor games and get all their wiggles out! This camp is perfect for the high energy kiddos who like to move and explore. 

Before participating in activities, campers will receive safety talks to prepare them to have the most fun they can in a safe capacity. These safety talks will include topics like: Basic Environmental Hazards, River Conditions, River Hazards, River Safety, Rock Climbing Rules and Regulations, Tips and Tricks for Safe Hiking, and more! 

Our programs provide meaningful experiences in the outdoors where kids learn, play, and grow their confidence!

Safety is our number one priority, so all campers will wear life jackets when in the water or on a boat. We maintain a 1-to-5 counselor-to-camper ratio to ensure every camper gets some one on one time throughout the week to advance his or her skills. 

Virginia Outside provides all supplies and gear needed to participate in our daily activities. This includes all bait and tackle, fishing rods, life jackets, and good times!

Pre-Camp Emails will be sent out to parents one week prior to the start date of the camp you registered for. This email will confirm camp type, time, meeting location, what to bring/what to wear and more!
