Camp Program Descriptions
The first week of camp will incorporate all of these camp elements into one action-packed week!
The following camps can then be chosen as specialties over the following four weeks. Campers will spend the morning at their specialty then have the opportunity to take elective classes from other specialties in the afternoon. All camps incorporate a mid-day swimming break!
Challenge Camp: With the guidance of certified, professional instructors, you will have the opportunity to meet Verdun’s 12 high ropes challenges! Start on the ground with low ropes challenges, then ascend to the finale as you take on the “Flight of the Red Tail Hawk”, one of the longest zip-lines in Virginia!
Survival & Sustainability Camp: “Enoughness” to the limits! Survival challenges, group building, Native American concepts of sustainability, and ropes course challenges make up the core elements of this camp experience!
Equestrian Camp: Do you like horses? Passage Creek Shires and Friends joins Verdun for this year’s Equestrian Camp. Ride a gentle giant, the Shire Horse!
