Teen Adventure Trips are off!
Our Habitat for Humanity, West Virginia White Water, and White Mountains kayak and climb trips have come and left over the past 3 days.
It was such a great sight, watching the group of campers really bond and start creating a community or almost family within hours of meeting each other. These campers spent the their first 36 hours doing team building activities, goal setting, and packing out food and gear to get them ready to go for the next 9 days of their adventure.
Habitat for Humanity spent their first full day in the Restore shop helping guests and reorganizing the store to maximize the profit they bring in so more houses can be built. What a great way for these group of campers to give back to the community and learn what the true meaning of service is.
West Virginia had a long drive ahead of them, so they took off nice an early to arrive safely at Ace Adventure Resort in West Virginia. They started their trip off with more team building and bonding activity called the mud obstacle course. Nothing like getting full of mud to help get a group of people together.
White Mountains was on their way and arrived with out any hiccups. They spent their first full day today experiencing some of the best climbing that the White Mountains have to offer. Climbing is such a great activity to really help campers step out of their comfort zone and truly grow from their experiences.
The trips will spend the next 9 days out on trail seeking adventure in all of its hidden places. We will be blogging again sometime this weekend to continue to keep you in the loop.
