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 and is based at Gordon College.
Registration for each session begins Mondays at 8:45 a.m. Adventure Camp is open to campers who are 10 years old by the beginning of that camp session.
Camp runs from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Monday–Thursday and 9 a.m.–6 p.m. on Fridays. Friday includes an all-camp celebration for campers and families from 5 p.m.-6 p.m. On Thursdays, there is no pick-up for 14–15-year-old campers on their overnight campout. If you have questions, please contact our Registrar at email@example.com or call 978.867.4504.
