Outdoor Adventure

Exercise your body and mind with exciting land and water activities.

  • rope courses
  • rock wall climbing
  • teamwork
  • trust building
  • environmental appreciation

The Pennington Adventure Camp is an opportunity for all participants to enjoy challenging and non-competitive activities while gaining an appreciation and respect for the outdoors. Our vision is to create a culture of self-discovery and social inclusion that promotes an individual’s development both personally and as a member of the community.

A week at Adventure Camp begins with a hike up a mountain and ends relaxing at the beach. The middle days will be spent scrambling up rock walls, biking down wooded trails, and challenging our fear of heights on a ropes course. On alternating weeks the middle days will be spent exploring the waterways of the Jersey Shore on a paddleboard, learning how to catch a wave, or having an easy day just floating down the river.

The ultimate goal of the Outdoor Adventure Camp is to encourage children's understanding of their local environment in order to influence the way they treat it, how they behave, and the lifestyle choices they make. And of course, we will have fun!
