Island Escapades Adventure Camps



Day camps at Island Escapades teach the essentials of ocean kayaking, while also featuring hiking, orienteering, swimming and climbing. Overnight camps address similar skills in a more intensive setting, with different programs focusing on ocean kayaking, mountaineering, wilderness skills or a combination of the three. Campers ages 15-18 who possess strong outdoor skills may enroll in a leadership program that provides early training for boys and girls interested in summer or year-round employment in outdoor education or recreation.
