La Vida provides adventure experiences in a safe environment that allows youth to expand their horizons in healthy and encouraging ways. The mission of La Vida Adventure Camp is to build character, a positive self-identity, and a commitment to serve and care for others. Adventure Camp uses small groups, experiential learning, personal discovery, team-building, adventure activities, and a high staff-camper ratio to foster this learning and growth. The program is a day camp with a Christian perspective based at Gordon College.
