Camp Overnights


All Adventure Camps have an overnight on Thursday night. The overnight is the culmination of each activity’s fun-filled week, building on a curriculum preparing your camper for Thursdays extended day and night. Overnights happen rain or shine, and all groups may implement a Plan B to ready themselves for inclement weather.

  • All campers who sign up for Adventure Camp are expected to participate in the Thursday overnight. Transportation between home & camp is not provided for Adventure campers on Thursday night or Friday morning.
  • Campers prepare and head out to their destinations on Thursday morning, not returning back to our home base at Riley’s Lock until Friday afternoon around 2:30pm.
  • Early parent pick-up or late drop-off on Thursday or Friday is unfortunately impossible on most programs due to the distances involved and overnight camping logistics.

As with our weekly itineraries, the overnight activities and locations are subject to change due to instructor decisions  – based largely upon skill levels, water levels, environmental hazards and campers’ thirst for adventure.

Basic overnight needs for all activities: Sleeping pad, sleeping bag, change of clothes, flashlight/headlamp, cup, bowl & spoon, toiletries, warm jacket & rain gear. Lunch for Thursday and non-perishable lunch for Friday.

Things not to bring: Cell Phones and any type of electronics!

Mosquito Tips – suggested for any water based pragrams: We suggest bringing very lightweight pants, long-sleeved shirt, socks and a hat that can be sprayed with bug spray.

Optional GearBag to purchase:

This year, Calleva is offering campers the option to purchase a GearBag during checkout which includes all the camping gear you will need for your overnight. These duffle bags come home with your camper on the bus before the overnight so it can be packed with personal clothes and toiletries!

Thank you for helping your camper get as excited as we are about the overnight!
