Adventure Travel Camp

Please let people in your clubs know that there are jobs avalible if people are interested in summer jobs.

Hi this is Willy Williams owner of Vermont Adventure Camps and Adventure Travel Camps since 2004. This year our travel camp is separate from the regular camp with its own web site and own set up. We have this camp totally on its own so that it can maximize performance and fun. We will be traveling all over New England and beyond. My New - Adventure Trek USA will take you on adventures all over the US and even some in different countries.
Please take a second to check out the 2010 travel camps. They are better than ever and will prove to be an adventure of a life time. I think that you will find them more affordable this year as we have decreased the price drastically and are now one of the most affordable Travel Camps in the US with a $126 dollar a day price tag on the trips. Choose to be with us for 2 weeks or for 4 weeks. We do not always stick exactly to the itinerary due to weather and the group of teens we have. If the group likes one activity more than another then we may let the kids vote to do what they would like to do. After all this is their summer vacation and their camp experience.
This camp is small and will stay that way. With a maximum of 16 kids on each tour they will get the most out of their experience. There will always be 3 counselors with them and even more when doing certain adventures. I will be traveling with them a lot of the time and be overseeing everything personally. We are very excited about this new set up and hope that return campers take advantage of this camp and have a whole new experience this summer while new campers join in and find out what Adventure Travel is all about.

Adventure Travel Camp 2010

Adventure Travel Camps specializes in camps that travel through out New England & the Surrounding States. Teens travel in 15 passenger vans with a cargo trailer on the back with a small SUV and a kayak trailer following behind. They spend 15 to 30 days doing awesome adventures during the day while camping at pristine camp grounds at night. There is a maximum of 16 kids at the camp and 3 to 4 counselors. The teens will participate in many adventures including rock climbing, river kayaking, white water kayaking, white water rafting, hiking, caving, mountain biking, skate boarding, go to beaches, water parks, city centers and much more. Sign up today your adventure awaits.
