Our camps are an amazing opportunity to get any kid enjoying the great outdoors! Our Instructors, Counselors, and Junior Counselors are lead by 2 of Calleva’s best Directors; Duncan & Olivia. We keep our groups small, and make sure that there are plenty of Calleva staff to make the day special. All activities are based out of our Virginia campus located at the Madeira School in Great Falls, VA. This property offers 300+ acres of riverfront forest, 8 private real-rock climbing areas, a newly built and professionally designed challenge course, and it’s right in the middle of some of the best whitewater in the area! At Calleva VA our goal is to combine the best adventures, with the best staff, to create the best summer memories! Read below for more information on our camp offerings!

Overnights: Depending on Camps there is either an optional overnight associated with our Virginia Sampler Camp, or an included overnight with our typical Adventure Camps. All overnights take place on or near Campus in Great Falls Va.
Rain Plan: We are aware that there are concerns regarding Rain & Storms at camp. For any programs that we can continue to do the activities with happy campers we will do so. If for any reason the rain or storm has us stop the activity, then all groups have an alternative plan and location under cover. For adverse weather (such as severe storms), all activities have nearby shelters or use Calleva buses as a temporary shelter.
