Adventure Expeditions Camp at Terrapin Adventures

Adventure Expedition (one of our three different day camps) starts off as a normal day camp, but how normal? Campers will challenge their inner adventures in many ways. Campers will start with a day of High Ropes Adventure. Staff will lead campers through our 40 foot, 3 level High Rope Challenge Course. Here campers must traverse, climb, Swing, jump and zip through 18 different challenges. Next campers will try and conquer all 12 routes up to the top of our 43 foot Terrapin Climbing Tower. Campers will learn how to belay each other which, in return has campers working together and trusting one another. After working up a sweat and getting a nice work out, campers will get the chance to fly.

They will fly 330ft down our zipline at up to 20mph with their hair blowing in the wind. If that is not enough of a thrill, then the Giant Swing awaits. Campers will be pulled 40ft into the air, and just like that, they will swing and experience 2 G’s of force while screaming with fear and delight. That’s all day one. If day one hasn’t tired the campers out, day two surely will leave them worn-out. Day two entails a 13 mile round trip, mountain biking on some of the trails that run along the Little Patuxent River and Lake Elkhorn. Campers will eat lunch on the trail while also exploring and cooling off in the Little Patuxent River.

Now day three is the day Adventure Expedition takes a twist. Campers will be dropped off at Patapsco State Park Hilton Area for a 3-day 2-night camping trip. We will provide almost everything needed. Only thing you need to bring is some clothes, sleeping bag and and curiosity about the great outdoors. During this trip, campers will learn about the flora and fauna of Patapsco Valley State Park, the Patapsco River, and the Chesapeake Bay Watershed through a hands-on Scales N Tales program ran by the Dept of Natural resources. Campers will also learn proper camp etiquette along with setting up camp, cooking on the trail, first aid, Leave No Trace, orienteering using maps, compasses and themselves, and the history of the Patapsco Valley.

One night we will see what the nightlife has to offer with a night hike along the trails of Patapsco Valley State Park. The final day will be a nice relaxing day with a 2 mile long river tube ride down the Patapsco River to end the day and the camp. All camp staff is CPR, First Aide and Wilderness first Aid certified.
