Our Appalachian Expeditions are rooted in adventure. We create a safe and fun learning environment whether exploring by foot, boat, or bike. All of our expeditions take place in the rugged wildlands of West Virginia where we learn about the landscape, our expedition community, and ourselves.
Summer 2023 Youth Expeditions
Trips for children/young adults ages 5–17
My son wanted to have the instructors over for a play-date because he enjoyed their company, trusted them and loved having daily adventures with them. Needless to say, he loved APEX camp!
My son said the camp was great! He was excited each morning knowing he was going back to camp.
My kid loved exploring the different habitats in the park. What an excellent way to teach the kids about nature!
Mom, can I go again next year?
I liked going on expeditions to the creek, meadow and lake.
At the end of camp, my kids are asking for a countdown for the next APEX start day :)
This camp is amazing! Four days of learning and playing outside was invaluable! Thanks APEX crew! We'll be back for sure!
This camp helped introduce our daughter to outdoor adventures. She loved it and can’t wait to return next year.
Creek day is the best day!
Loved it! I'll be back next year!
My son loves the camp! He couldn't wait to get there everyday. Even a broken foot the night before could not keep him away!! Thanks to Appalachian Expeditions for a great week!!
We love this day camp! Super fun Adventures!
As a parent, I loved the format of an “adventure camp”. A fun new activity was planned for each day and not without its challenges on occasion, making it a true adventure camp
I really just can’t say enough about Appalachian Expeditions’ Wild Day Camp that our son attended last week. Clearly he had an absolute blast! Libbey, Alex, and Kate, along with their special guests, do an incredible job, not only teaching these kiddos but having the most fun while doing it. Our son’s only wish is that he didn’t have to wait again until next summer to do something with them again.
It is really fun to be a mud monster! Come to camp. You will love it!
My granddaughter came home from camp excited about the day’s activities and ready to go back the next day. She thought it was over too soon. She has already asked me if she can return next year. (Of course she can!) The ratio of campers to counselors was very good. Thank all of you for a very well run camp.
Thank you for providing this opportunity to my girls. They loved each day of the camps! After the biking day, the pride they felt in themselves just radiated. I could “see” their faces just beaming. Their favorite day hands down was the caving experience, but they loved it all.
It was a great adventure and learning experience. They got to learn about nature, creeks, and animals. Also great activities! Definitely worth to sign up for. I’m definitely signing him up next year.
Our son had a great time and didn't want camp to end. We felt like he was in good hands and can't wait until next year! Our son has grown so much this week from his APEX adventure, his smile and energy levels say it all! My lil' nervous 5yo, ran off and didn't even say goodbye to me the second day...I think that speaks volumes about his comfort and wonderful growing experience!
Our daughter loves getting dirty and she loves science, so of course she had a great time. What you all give her is exposure to things that she has been hesitant to do in the past. We can actually take her on hikes now (if we call them adventure walks and she can bring a doll.) Thanks again for taking such good care of her.
