Here’s where we really turn up the heat! Rappelling, whitewater rafting, downriver stand up paddle boarding, various climbing techniques, the anatomy of knots, belay certification, and mechanical advantage systems are some of the urban wilderness experiences your kids can expect from this camp.
We will also go further in depth with wilderness discovery, including: tree identification, tree risk assessment, hydrology and habitats. Your kids will get the chance to swim through the James River ecosystem, observing huge catfish, turtles, gar, and the list goes on. These activities can be relatively strenuous and require a moderate level of physical fitness.
Our goal with this program is to create a passion for adventure, stewardship for the environment, and a higher level of self-efficacy. This is an experience that participants will be proud of and remember.
Although we love to see graduating OAKs in O.G, previous experience is not required.
