Teen Adventure (TA) is an innovative and physically challenging two week experience with a focus on community service, affirming individual strengths, teaching compassion and bringing forth environmental stewardship. Service learning has long been a deeply integral part of Nature Camps philosophy. Teens feel the power of tradition, community and service during their engaging time with their peers. Teens eagerly participate in "service" projects, both on site at Nature Camps and while away on the Spoutwood Farm TA trip. Teens begin to see themselves not only as autonomous individuals, but also as members of an intentional community - the Nature Camps Family, working side by side with staff, sharing the physical labor and learning leadership skills by working so closely with staff members. Teens spend one week at camp filling a counselor in training role and spend the next week adventuring on one of our three trips. TA enrollment is limited to eight teens per two-week session with two TA Leaders. Early enrollment is recommended. See the Calendar.
