Additional Adventure Treks Information

Treks begin with a day of preparation, team bonding, and high ropes. After arriving to camp on the second day, campers and their counselors will confirm gear and other readiness and head into the White Mountains of New Hampshire! Once arriving, campers will hike to a nearby ‘pristine’ camping site and set up camp. Over the course of Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, campers will (weather permitting) have the opportunity to see a waterfall and view the White Mountains from the top of a mountain – a ‘peak’ experience.

In addition to hiking and incredible views, campers will learn camping basics, including building safe campfires, tent and equipment setup, gear care, and other wilderness protocols. They’ll get to know each other in backcountry settings without the distractions of technology.

On Thursday, campers will make it back to camp in time for 4 p.m. pickup. And on Friday, they’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a final action-packed day at camp, wrapping up with our classic Celebration (where friends and family are always invited).

Did you know that every staff member at La Vida Adventure Camp has first aid and CPR training? Our trip counselors are just a few of our enthusiastic and caring staff who are additionally trained in wilderness, safety, and other camping skills.

As an extended camping experience, the cost of Treks is an additional $80 to cover staff wages, gear, and the food provided on the New Hampshire trip. The total cost for Treks is $500 per session.

Camp Staff

Campers are placed in a small group with a trained counseling team. In addition, activity specialists lead our adventure activities. Staff are past and present Gordon College students along with other carefully selected, caring adults. Adventure Camp's primary concern is seeing to each camper's physical, emotional and social needs. For that reason, we limit our camper/staff ratio to 5:1 or lower.
