Camp themes rotate throughout the school year.

Adventure Camp Series

TRC is looking forward to a new year of Track Out camps starting this fall. Themes for our Adventure Camp Series will rotate each quarter. In addition, weekly curriculum changes will keep multi-week campers engaged. Each camper will receive an Adventure Passport in which to track visits and accomplishments.

Adventure Travel Camp: Explore a world of adventure! Campers learn about different continents, cultures, and foods, play traditional games from all over, and discuss others’ world travel narratives.

Adventure Wildlife Camp: Take a walk on the wild side of our planet! Campers learn about the world’s most exotic plants and animals, as well as their natural habitats.

Adventure Sports Camp: Campers learn to experience sports in a new way. We cover adventure beyond climbing such as mountain biking, water sports, snow sports, and adventure racing.

My Adventure Camp: Campers learn to hone and develop the skills necessary for a lifetime of adventure. The week will focus on fitness, nutrition, survival, and challenge courses.
