Adventure Day Camp

Adventure Day Camp

Four days of big adventures: hiking, biking, canoeing, and caving (ages 9-13).

Trip Overview

The APEX Adventure Day Camp engages participants with a new outdoor adventure each day–hiking a trail to a sweet spot, biking through challenging Tucker County terrain, paddling the riffles of the Cheat River, and exploring a wild cave. Through these adventures, participants build confidence and develop their technical skills with the support of their peers and experienced instructors. This trip is for the kid who wants to spend a week outside while having fun.

In 2022, we will offer three Adventure Day Camps! Two will run concurrent with the Wild Day Camps. These two camps are for participants ages 9-11. We hope that this will offer families with children ranging from 5 to 11 years old a week full of fun and adventure. The Adventure Day Camp Advanced will be for 11-13 year olds and will be a full 5 days of adventure, capping off the week with a day of rafting on the Cheat River Narrows with Blackwater Outdoor Adventures.
