Since 1993, we have been running quality camps that take kids to the most beautiful areas in the DC area.


Camps are designed around a 5-day “building block style ” curriculum with age-appropriate adventures. Our amazing camp offerings include:

  • CUBS (4-5 year olds): Our introduction to loving and caring for the outdoors in a fun and caring environment. Expect singing, educational learning, caring for animals, and amazing stories.
  • EXPLORERS (6-8 year olds):  Camper get to focus on some of the core Calleva adventure activities, and broaden the appeal with some more traditional camping experiences.
  • EXPLORERS EXTREME (9 year olds): Known affectionately as “E-X-P-X”, this is for 9 year old campers who are excited to experience the fun and challenges of a whole day delving into one outdoors activity, but not quite ready to choose an Adventure Camp whole week focus and overnight.
  • ISLAND DAY CAMP (9-12 year olds): Evolved from our  popular Adventure Island Camp without the overnight. This incredible island experience is exclusively for 9-12 year olds with exciting new activities such as Island arts & crafts, Creeking, high and low ropes challenges and fire-building alongside some of our ‘old favorites’ like rapid swimming, paddling duckies and canoes and ‘King of the Log’!
  • ADVENTURE CAMPS (9-15 year olds):  Camper journey from learning an “activity” to applying it on an adventurous thursday overnight. Camps include: Caving, Art in Nature, Fishing, Growing Green, Grunkan’s Land & Water Adventures, Horseback Riding, Kayaking, Mountain Biking, Paddleboarding, Rafting, Rock Climbing, Sailing.
  • SAMPLER (9-15 year olds): When you just decide on one adventure, why not do them all…. or at least a “best of” package!  These weeks are limited to the beginning & end of summer.
  • HIGH ADVENTURES (12-17 year olds):  Taking the overnight to the next level with a week or so totally immersed in your activity, your adventure, your team, and the outdoors! Great opportunity to master your skills; including Surfing, Sailing, Kayaking, Climbing, Caving, Backpacking and more!
  • LEADERSHIP SCHOOL (13-17 year olds): Life changing courses that integrate wilderness camping and leadership training for young people. Courses range from 5-7 days.
