Our adventure camp Activities

Campers will have the opportunity to go flat water tubing and white water tubing.


The flat water tubing adventure is a perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day. Surrounded by the beautiful Appalachian Mountains, campers will lazily float down the Shenandoah. Campers will be able to float down the flat water section, take a break where lemonade will be provided, and then re-float before the day’s end. After conquering flatwater tubing, campers will be able to experience a white water tubing trip where they will encounter class I-III white water rapids while paddling down the Potomac River near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.

Campers will be guided through the splashing white water rafting of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. This 6-7 mile river excursion provides a wonderful experience for beginner to intermediate paddlers looking to enjoy class I-III white water rapids and breathtaking scenery.


Rafts accommodate 4-6 campers plus a guide; the number of participants in each raft may vary due to water levels. Outdoor Adventure Camp turns this typical 2-3 hour trip into an all-day event. Campers will have plenty of time to swim and play in calm sections of the water. Lunches will be brought with them on the trip so that they can eat mid-day on the shoreline. Campers will even have the opportunity to glide down two naturally occurring water slides.

*Campers should weigh at least 50 lbs for rafting

Each of our trails has approximately 12 elements per course, totaling 108 challenges for hours of fun!! Adventure Park Courses are rated on a scale similar to a ski resort, labeled yellow, green, blue, and black, with yellow being the easiest and black being the most difficult. Campers will also have the opportunity to try the DC area’s first and fastest all-steel, high-speed Mega Zip Line, with the option of lying down ‘Superman’ style and racing against their friends on the 1,200-foot line reaching up to 50 mph.
