Your summer adventure awaits! For more than 15 years, the Greenway has offered summer camps to local children of all ages and interests. The Greenway provides 2,100 acres of preserved land to hike, bike, fish, and kayak your way to a summer full of exploration and adventure. Greenway Summer Camps allow kids an opportunity to put down the gadgets, get outside, and explore something awesome - the great outdoors! In 2017, nearly 6,000 campers came through Greenway camp programs and experienced a summer getting close to nature, whether it be by fishing in the Greenway lakes, taking to the trails on mountain bikes, splashing in the creek, sharpening their archery skills, or getting competitive in the Gaga Pit. It is the mission of Greenway Summer Camps to give children a chance to experience and celebrate nature. They arrive home muddy and tired, full of outdoor experiences they won’t soon forget. Our most popular Greenway camp is the ACA-accredited Adventure Seekers program geared toward ages six to fourteen. This camp welcomed over 900 kids this past summer, providing a wide array of outdoor experiences, including kayaking, fire-building, fishing, archery, fort building, mountain biking, hiking, stream stomping, geocaching and more. Other popular camps include the Tiny Timbers (ages three to four) & Little Critters (ages five to six), which offer similar activities as Adventure Seekers but to a younger audience, as well as FLYERS full-day camps (rising 1st to 6th graders) and Equestrian Camps (ages eight to 14). From hikes to horseback rides, to swimming and stream stomping, to creativity and character development, take advantage of camp programs for ages three to 18, offering a variety of unique outdoor experiences for all ages and interests.

ADVENTURE SEEKERS

mountain bike camp (basic)

Our Leader-In-Training program is designed for rising 10th, 11th and 12th graders. This program serves as an excellent transition from “Camper to Counselor” for Adventure Seekers Camp and is a very meaningful way to spend the summer. LITs assist the Counselors in leading groups of campers, and they have the opportunity to participate in many camp activities. LITs must possess responsibility and leadership abilities. Prospective LITs must complete an application form which includes one letter of reference from someone who is not related to them (a teacher, mentor or group leader). A letter of reference should speak to why they would be a good fit for camp. LIT’s will be required to attend a 1 week training June 4-8. After that they will be required to volunteer for at least Teaching 2 weeks of camp but are welcome to volunteer for as many as they want. If you are interested and would like the application packet please contact SuzanneBelanger@ascgreenway.org. Applications are due by May 15.

In the 3-day time period we are able to give instruction on technical trail riding, slow handling skills, proper positioning, allowing the camper more confidence on the bike while riding trails. Mountain biking is a sport where self-esteem is gained and adrenalin runs free. These camps are geared for boys and girls between the ages of 9-14. Your child must already know how to ride a bike. Camp will run Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Tuesday and Wednesday camp hours are 9:00am-1:00pm, Thursday camp is a full day from 9:00am-5:00pm with your child bringing his/her bathing suit and towel, we’ll bike to the Recreation Complex, swim and return. Campers will be dropped off and picked up at the Field Trial Barn, located at 195 Adventure Road. Instructors: Patty Smith & Doug Satterwhite.
