Choose Your Own Adventure Camp (4 - 12 years)

Once upon a time at a summer camp not so far away, a group of children embarked on an epic journey filled with excitement and friendship.

 

In this camp, inspired by Choose Your Own Adventure books, children will work as a group to overcome difficulties to reach Home, using their imagination to interpret clues and cross hurdles, from obstacle courses to dragon lairs. Over the course of the week, children will choose their roles, customize their symbols and tools for the journey, and go on their adventure, sharing the Life Points and treasure they gain along the way. The adventure will be a three-part journey, taking them on routes in Brantwood Park and on the river path, to Home in Springhurst Park.

 

Choose your own adventure camp provides an excellent opportunity for children to express their creativity, build their confidence and develop leadership skills. With a variety of activities, there is sure to be something of interest for everyone in this camp.
