Outdoor Adventure Programs

Build team spirit, improve communication, inspire ingenuity and develop resourcefulness by participating in FUN and challenging low- and high-ropes course activities. In this extraordinary, interactive learning environment, campers are faced with decision-making situations that can be stimulating both mentally and physically as they navigate obstacles both on the ground and in the trees at the Outdoor Adventure Course (OAC). Participants must be at least 12 years old and in the sixth grade or older. The OAC is offered as an Individual OAC Challenge, Advanced OAC Challenge and Troop OAC Challenge.
