Adventure Camps & Youth Programs

Adventure Camps

This camp is designed for those who are looking for the traditional summer camp experience. These camps offer a mixture of both on water and land activities. Activities include canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, basic survival skills, hiking, educational day trips and basic outdoor skills. 

Overnight Adventure Camps

We have teamed up with Kentucky State Parks to provide a unique experience in multiple parts of our beautiful state. From the east, where we have paddling, climbing, rappelling, caving, and more at our fingertips, to the central part of our state, where paddling the Green River allows for an on the water overnight experience, to the west where the flat lakes and small ponds create a phenomenal outdoor learning experience.
These camps are designed for those who are looking for a little more than a traditional day camp. During these camps all meals/equipment and travel from Frankfort is included. These camps will be  week long trips allowing campers to learn more in-depth skills including basic camping and navigation mixed with the culture of an amazing overnight camp
