Hello Adventurers!  In Adventure, we make it our goal to meet every camper where they are, and throughout their time with us help to build them up to reach their fullest potential.  We believe that combining the best, most caring staff with the unparalleled power of the wilderness is the most positive and purposeful path toward success we can set any camper on.  Individuals who come through the Frost Valley Adventure Program do so with their heads held high, ready to face the school year with new skills, new confidence, and the ability to tackle hard problems that come their way!  Adventure is where life-long friends are found, and we make it our mission to help everyone we meet feel great in meeting their goals.


We are currently underway in preparing for the amazing Adirondack Hike and Climb Adventure Trip, which is this week’s Trip of the Week!  Campsites are picked, rock climbing guides are ready to go, and the views are only getting more and more stunning as we get closer to summer!  If your camper is entering 7th or 8th grade, this could be the trip that sets this experience apart from anything else! We will be hitting the trail for the first half of the trip with our all-star trip leaders, followed by a week of climbing under the guide of ADK Rock and River, one of the best guiding services to be found in New York!  Everything is in place for a great trip into one of the most beautiful settings around!


Spots on this trip are filling up fast, sign up today to secure your spot on what is going to be one of the best Adirondack experiences around! You can register online or you can call our registrars at 845-985-2291 ext. 203. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

You can also email me, Jesse Rafter, at adventure@frostvalley.org or call me at 845-985-2291 ext. 265 with any questions you may have. I look forward to see you here and out on the trails this summer!
