Our Story

Established in the summer of 2002, Adventure Kids Camp began as a way for Executive Director Julie Klabunde to spend more time with her own children while still providing them with fun yet educational summertime activities.

Our Mission is to provide a safe, enriching environment for children that enhances social skills and self-esteem, nurtures spiritual growth, and instills a sense of responsibility and respect for the Earth and all her natural resources.

CITS

Counselors in Training (CIT) are volunteer staff members between the ages of 13-15 years. CIT's assist counselors but are not left in charge of campers. All CITs are also First-Aid and CPR certified. The CIT program is designed to develop young people with strong leadership skills. Due to the popularity of this program, eligibility is limited to former campers only.  For more information about this exciting program, please follow the link below!
