Adventure CampAdventure Skills: 6th - 8th Grade

Weekly Sessions held Fridays, 7-10 pm
July 10 - August 28

$35 Member, $45 Non-Member      

Sign up today for a middle-school version KNC’s traditional, on-site, summer camp program. To maintain the safety of children and families during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will host one group of up to eight children each Friday from 7-10pm for a night hike and campfire at KNC. The group will be led by experienced staff, practice physical distancing, and wear face coverings/masks throughout registration and their daily activities. We’ll strive to provide your middle schooler with a chance to connect with their friends around the fire and enjoy a night hike to different locations on KNCs grounds each week. Keeping your middle schooler as safe as possible and healthy is our number one priority in planning and executing these programs. That’s why we’ve taken several safety precautions into account and created a new set of policies specific to these programs based on CDC and ACA guidance. For more details, see the Parent Handbook here. Our youth are in need of fun, in-person connections now more than ever! Our goal is to safely provide these experiences in a natural setting. Space is limited so sign up today!
