Calleva’s roots are dug deep in the outdoor adventure world and we believe there is no better place to do these activities than right in our backyard.  We use local State and National Parks as our locations for our outdoor adventure activities. Depending on the group size we can divide participants up into different activities or keep them all together.  We will work with your leadership team to pick out the best activities for your group. Although the activities are different, they all embody many of the same themes and principles; adventure, teamwork, and of course FUN!  Like all of our programs, Calleva follows the “challenge by choice” model and students will be pushed to stretch themselves in a safe environment. We understand that there is often a huge range of experience levels and abilities within each group so our programs are designed to accommodate everyone.  These programs can be single day trips, up to weeklong overnight experiences.
