WHAT IS ADVENTURE CAMPS?
Adventure Camps is a completely mobile day camp. Rather than being a facility-based program, we run our camps from our own counselor-driven vans. Every day is a new destination and an exciting new adventure.
WHERE DO YOU GO?
Every day is different. For Summer Camps, we love to explore the Bay Area's wonderful parks, playgrounds, and beaches. We visit a wide range of places from Coyote Point Park in San Mateo to Tilden Park in Berkeley and in between. For most School Year and Vacation Camps, mainly frequenting San Francisco, we explore Golden Gate Park, the Forts (Fort Miley, Funston, Mason, Point, etc.), Beaches, Playgrounds, the possibilities are endless. But it’s not just about where we go. At Adventure Camps, the real difference is that no matter where we are, the children are safe, having fun, and feeling great about themselves.
WHAT IS YOUR AGE RANGE?
We accept kids as young as 4 and as old as 12. Although we frequently have alumni campers 13 and older coming back to camp as helpers, CIT’s and junior counselors.
WHAT ARE YOUR SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR SWIMMING?
Many of our campers are not yet water safe and we are fully aware of their needs and skill levels. Though our camps swim at facilities where lifeguards are present at all times, we recognize that we are responsible for all of our campers at all times, and we lifeguard as well. Within their own safety limits, we make sure our campers are safe and having fun!
DO YOUR VANS HAVE BOOSTER SEATS?
Booster seats are available in all of our vans for campers who need them. We do have campers of all different ages and sizes, so if you’d like your child to ride in one just let us know.
ARE YOU A NUT-FREE CAMP?
Many of our campers have food allergies. We pay close attention to our campers' dietary needs. Campers may bring any food that they like to camp. If your child has any allergies, please contact us with any details, directions, and the severity.
HOW DO YOU KEEP TRACK OF ALL YOUR CAMPERS?
Each place we go is given thoughtful consideration. We have spent the last 51 years refining our adventures and only choose locations that are completely safe. Our camps rarely venture to crowded places, as we prefer to explore off-the-beaten-path Adventure Camp Style. When we do take our adventures to busier locations, our staff’s focus is never off of our campers. Safety is always our highest priority. This is one of the reasons Adventure Camps has been so popular for over half a century.
