Summer Camps

Join us for a summer adventure unmatched in the region!  With an emphasis on leadership development, communication and the development of positive friendships, our adventure programs aren’t your average camp!  Through great outdoor adventures, we prepare campers to live fully, respect one another, communicate effectively and act with compassion.

For the summer of 2018, we hope to be offering 3 different camp experiences:

• Our Rocks, Ropes and Boats camps are offered as a 5 day summer day camps for campers, aged 7-13. We spend 2 days at the project Discovery course, one rock climbing, one hiking and one on Lake Tahoe in kayaks. Your child will build friendships and confidence that will last them a lifetime.

• Our Tahoe Leadership Academy has been specially designed for veteran high adventure campers, ages 13-16,  who have some familiarity with high adventure activities and who are ready to try their hand at leading and mentoring younger campers. The Leadership Academy is open to campers ages 13 and above who have previously participated in Project Discovery camps (or comparable camps).

Our High Adventure Camp is a 5 day overnight camp for campers aged 13-18 with experience in the outdoors. The camp includes a variety of ropes course, backpacking, rock climbing and canyoneering challenges that are tailored to push campers safely to new limits.

Here’s what parents have told us about our camps:


The Adventure Camps have been the absolutely best thing for my daughter and she has grown so much and made so many friends. She looks forward to them every year!  – Afshan West, Parent


My daughter has practically grown up in this program and looks forward to it every year. The courage and maturity she has gained from all the years in your summer camps has been extraordinary. – Kris Hemline, Parent


All of my kids have benefited greatly from being involved in the Project Discovery summer camp program. They always return stronger, more confident and with plenty more stories, and more importantly, good friends from their summer camp adventures. – Josh Pollock, Parent


You couldn’t ask for a better program to get students out into nature and connecting more with themselves and their friends than Project Discovery’s. Thanks for all the good work you do! – Melinda Blackwell, Teacher, Galena HS and Equis Insight Program Director 


Not only was this camp fun for my son, it was transformative.  After the week was out, he independently tried activities and challenges that we’d been encouraging (unsuccessfully) for years!  He came home with increased confidence and independence that he uses in all aspects of his life.  Thank you Tahoe Adventure Camps! – Jen S., Parent
