Foothills Adventure Camp logo 

Foothills Adventure Camp (Ages 11-13)
Adventure is built on the same tried-and-true principles as our Foothills Fun and Day Camps, but developed specifically for middle school aged youth. Longer hikes, more sophisticated games and activities, and weekly challenges with the Foothills Camp staff. An overnight on the first Thursday of the session is a must, but Foothills Adventure takes campfires and night games to the next level.

Campers can be dropped off anytime between 7:30am-8:45am, and picked up anytime between 3:30pm-6:00pm (drop-off and pickup location is at the Mitchell Park Teen Center, located at the Community Center, 3700 Middlefield Rd). Bus leaves promptly at 9:00am and arrives at 3:30pm.
