Project Discovery is once again honored to offer an excellent leadership based summer day camp program for kids ages 7 through 13. Campers are sure to experience exciting and dynamic outdoor adventures with their team as they explore the Tahoe outdoors together! Sign up today as space is very limited.
- Monday & Tuesday: The first two days of this program will be spent at the Project Discovery Ropes Challenge Course at Sky Tavern. This course is one of the largest challenge courses in the country and offers fun and exciting leadership opportunities like a ride down a 550’ zip line, a double trapeze bar and many team elements up high for all to enjoy. Students will also learn how to belay in a supervised team setting and how to climb and balance on dozens of exciting elements.
- Wednesday: Students will spend the day at a safe, beginning rock climbing site. Students will use the skills learned on the ropes course and will apply it to real rocks at a well-supervised and safe location. This beginning rock climbing area is a great place to practice the art of rappelling and rock climbing followed by some cooling off with some water play.
- Thursday: Participants will attempt a summit team climb a local peak and visit a waterfall along the way. Campers not up to the Summit Challenge will spend time in Environmental Education activities on a creek and at a frog pond.
- Friday: The week will conclude with an exciting day on the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe where students will construct their own boat and learn about water safety and other travel skills. This last day on the water is a time to enjoy new friendships and relive adventures the group has shared together.
This week will not only provide students a great adventure in the local Tahoe area but also focus on helping students find and celebrate their own leadership strengths, both as individuals and as team members. The week ends with an appreciation circle celebrating each student’s accomplishments and growth during the week. The goals include improving leadership skills, self-confidence, communication skills and of course, the making of new friendships.
