Adventures

Voyagers (Grades 6-8)

VOYAGERS offers campers who have completed 6th, 7th, or 8th grade two-week sessions of both day and overnight trips to destinations such as the Berkshires, Rhode Island, Cape Cod and New Hampshire. This program is for those who enjoy nature and are looking to challenge themselves with overnight camping and more extreme adventures. Voyagers is the intermediate group of the Adventures program. Groups will have day trips during the entire first week of the session and the start of the second week. Activities may include advanced hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing, fishing, swimming, and canoeing. The session culminates in a two-night camping trip

Note: Camping is a required component of the Voyagers session, so there is not an on-campus alternative. Hiking, biking and kayaking / canoeing will also take place during each session. Please ensure that your camper is comfortable with these activities before signing up!

Drop-off and pick-up will occur at Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall every day, except when campers are away for their overnight trip. Drop-off runs from 8:15am - 8:40am. The camp day runs from 8:55am - 3:25pm. Pick-up runs from 3:30pm - 4:00pm. When a group leaves for a camping trip, it returns in time for dismissal on Friday. Bus and Extended Day options are also available!
