2nd year returns same quality camps with new opportunities for teens
Summer campers loved their first year of outdoor adventures in Geauga Park District – biking, fishing, exploring the woods and sending rockets high into the sky.
Now camps are back in new formats and with new activities.
Week-long Adventure Day Camps for youth entering 5th through 7th grades return to offer experiences in pond exploration, sky navigation, canoeing, fishing and more during the weeks of June 23, July 7, 14, 28 and August 4. A single Adventure Week for teens entering 8th through 10th grades will be offered the week of July 21.
But new this year, single-day X-Treme Adventures will engage teens entering 8th through 10th grades in things like survival, air and space, kayaking the Cuyahoga River, natural science with park biologists and extreme astronomy. Themed days are June 30, July 1, 2 and 3.
“To improve upon our inaugural year, 2013 camps were rated on many different levels by campers, parents and counselors,” said Sandy Ward, Park District communications specialist. “Their feedback has been heard, and will make 2014 a year that yields not only greater self confidence and appreciation for nature among the campers, but more fun and more adventure, which is what the campers really want.”
Summer camps are sponsored by the Chip Henry Institute for Outdoor Adventure, a special initiative established in memory of the late Geauga County Probate/Juvenile Court Judge Charles “Chip” Henry, who had great passion for nature and youth.
Camp attendance costs $150 for full weeks and $30 for X-Treme Adventures.
