Adventure Camp 1
Summer at Norwood’s Adventure Camp provides a mix of environmental education and exposure to a wide array of adventure-based activities as campers travel by bus with their team or pod. (maximum of 12 per pod). Campers will explore various local parks and natural landmarks while hiking, kayaking, white water rafting, rock climbing and helping to evaluate the health of local streams. In addition to providing learning opportunities, Adventure Camp presents campers with a chance to explore and stretch their comfort zone through a variety of ropes course activities to develop problem-solving and leadership skills, all while building team unity.
Summer at Norwood hires only top-notch certified instructors to lead its Adventure Camp, and partners with Outdoor Excursions, Inc., the Washington area’s leading white water outfitter.
