Your Summer Adventure begins at WRA. About Adventure Camp Adventure Camp at Western Reserve Academy has just about everything! From enriching activities to sports to outdoor adventures, campers express themselves, explore their world and discover new interests. Campers make new friends and try new things that allow them to broaden their horizons. New campers will be amazed at the number of activities they will experience in one week. During each session, every camper will do the following: w Choose two Enriching Adventures, each meeting for four, 50-minute sessions w Pick one Sporting Adventure that meets for three, 60-minute sessions w Mountain bike through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park w Kayak one of the most beautiful waterways in Northeast Ohio w Participate in traditional camp favorites such as capture the counselor (think capture the flag meets hide-n-seek), swimming, camp competitions and so much more! Although everybody knows what will happen during the course of a week, each day is a surprise at Adventure Camp! The daily schedule is revealed as the day unfolds so campers enjoy the activity of the moment instead of getting lost in tomorrowâ€™s adventures. At Adventure Camp, every day is a new adventure!

Discover new interests. Discover yourself here. Enriching Adventures Adventure Campers make new discoveries and expand their creative potential through engaging activities. Each camper selects two enrichment offerings per session, and each activity meets four times during a oneweek session.
Options for Sessions 1, 2 & 3 PHOTOGRAPHIC EFFECTS - Campers learn the features of Google’s Picasa to manipulate their own digital images into works of art. All campers take home a disc with copies of their collection. ROCKIN’ ROCKETS - After campers learn the physics of a rocket launch, they build their own spacecrafts and watch them soar into the sky. LET’S GET CRAFTY - Mosaic masterpieces, styrofoam robots and woven friendship bracelets are just some of the art projects campers create at Adventure Camp. CREATIVE COOKING - WRA’s dining hall is home to kitchen adventures as campers prepare their own pizzas with pizzazz, cupcake creations and other delicious dishes. COMICAL THEATRICS - Improvisation skits such as the “Emotion Party” and classic bits including “Who’s on First” give campers opportunities to have fun while displaying their theatrical skills. MAGICIANS IN TRAINING - Card tricks, disappearing coins and sawing (paper) assistants in half are just some of the skills campers develop while training for the stage.
Options for Sessions 4, 5 & 6 T-SHIRT TIME - Classic tie-dyes and T-shirts displaying campers’ computer-generated graphics will become the newest additions to their wardrobes. WRA PRODUCTIONS - After developing a script and plot, campers use a digital video camera to produce a group short film. Using iMovie, everyone edits the production that premiers at the closing ceremonies. Campers take home DVD copies of the movie. LINE DANCING MANIA - Campers learn classics including the YMCA and Macarena, as well as newer favorites such as the Cupid Shuffle and the Cha-Cha Slide. CLAY WORKS - Using air-dry clay to mold original works of art, ideas take shape in the ultimate hands-on activity. From dinosaurs to flowers to necklaces, campers’ masterpieces are as unique as they are fun. ADVENTURES IN SCIENCE - Models and basic experiments teach campers scientific principles such as propulsion, solar power, chemical reactions or conductivity. ADVENTURE CAMP PAINTERS, INC. - While working in the studio and around WRA’s picturesque campus, campers’ imaginations are the inspiration for their brushes.

Wilderness Adventures Adventure Camp extends beyond WRAâ€™s campus to surrounding parks and reserves. Everyone learns how to navigate some of the best trails and waterways in Northeast Ohio while kayaking and mountain biking each session.
Not all of our adventures happen on land! During each session, campers learn the fundamentals of kayaking from our well-trained staff. Counselors teach boater safety and basic paddling techniques, and everyone discovers the thrill of piloting a vessel on the Cuyahoga River.
Bumpy trails ahead! Bikers of all skill levels enjoy trails that are perfect and fun for each camper. The first day of mountain biking involves riding a local park trail. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is the site for additional journeys and great scenery such as the impressive Brandywine Falls or locks along the historic Ohio & Erie Canal.
