Why Adventure Camp?

Summer camp will never be the same again

Sign your kids up for our Adventure Day Camps at Tree to Tree Adventure  Park! We offer one extraordinary day camp annually, and our three-day summer session is jam-packed with excitement among the trees. Open to children ages 10 to 14, our campers blaze new trails, learn new skills, explore nature and challenge their inner selves through a series of fun yet educational activities.

What’s special about Tree to Tree’s Camp?

Our world today is so saturated with electronic connections and instant access to the answer to any question.  While we’re not denying that those things have changed the world, we like to re-connect with ourselves and the outdoors.  Our camp allows you to do just that.

Communicate In-Person, Not Online.

Your camper will leave technology behind and spend time communicating with each other, building relationships,  and –  possibly our favorite – staying present in the moment.   We’ve all had that moment where we’re uncomfortable or bored and immediately seek refuge in scrolling through our phones.  Let’s practice changing that!

Challenge Your Inner Self, Build Confidence.

Adventure is the perfect way to try something new and test inner boundaries.  Your camper will have the opportunity to explore who they are, try new adventures, or conquer a fear!  It’s such a great feeling to do something that you never thought would be possible for you.  We can’t wait to share that feeling with your camper!

Explore Nature.

We’ll go trail blazing, Tree-O-Caching, learn about nature and the ecosystem, and even build a fort or two. We’ll learn about map skills on a scavenger hunt, the science of trees, and practice some wilderness survival skills.  In addition, your camper will learn how to take an active part in protecting our world!

…Did we mention ADVENTURES?

You and your camper probably already know and love our Aerial Adventure Course, Zip Line Tour, Monkey Grove, Racing Zips, Treetop Plunge, and Ninja Warrior Course.  Not to worry, there will be plenty of sky-high fun and adventures throughout camp!

What should I know before I arrive?

You’re in for the adventure of a lifetime!

  • Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled reservation time.  Please allow plenty to time for traffic and parking – oftentimes throughout the season, parking can get tricky!

  • Wear closed toed shoes, no open toed sandals or flip flops.
  • Long hair needs to be in ponytail.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather. We are open rain or shine and will only close due to high winds or lightning.
  • Wear something comfortable for climbing. You will be required to wear a harness. Baggy clothing is not recommended.
  • You are going to be outside, so expect dirt, pollen and tree sap. You will probably get some on your clothes, so dress appropriately.
  • You are more than welcome to bring your own food and drink, but NO alcohol.
  • Consider bringing gloves.  Some people prefer to wear them while going through the courses.
  • All participants will be given a training class, then your adventure will be self guided. We have guides on all courses at all times in case you have any difficulty.

What is the Proper Attire?

Not sure what to wear on your tree top adventure? No worries – We can help.  You’ll want to be sure to wear comfortable athletic wear for your visit to Tree to Tree Aerial Adventure Park.  Here’s some tips and the details:

  • Wear closed toed shoes, no open toed sandals or flip flops. Closed toed shoes, such as sneakers, hiking boots, and closed toed sandals, are all permissible. No open shoes of any kind are allowed on the course.
  • Long hair needs to be in ponytail.
  • Shorts or long pants are fine, but remember we are in the trees, so beware of sap, dirt, bugs and pollen! Also, if you decide to wear shorts, we recommend at least mid-thigh length as your harness has leg straps that are generally uncomfortable rubbing on bare skin.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather. We are open rain or shine and will only close due to high winds or lightning.
  • Wear something comfortable for climbing. You will be required to wear a harness. Baggy clothing is not recommended.
