Lasting Adventures Outdoor Summer Camps for Youth and Teens

Outdoor Summer Camps are the cornerstones of Lasting Adventures—they inspire heartfelt memories, build healthy friendships and instill passion for nature that lasts a lifetime. Whether it’s a 6-day High Country Adventure, a 13-day submersion in the Sierras or a 27-day Junior Leadership Expedition, our #1-trusted West Coast outdoor summer camp programs set a stage for your child to experience nature’s most spectacular offerings in a controlled environment where education and fun are equally paramount.

Youth and Teen Outdoor Summer Camps in Three National Parks

As one of California’s top-rated outdoor summer camps, we’re expanding into new landscapes with youth and teen summer camps in Washington’s Olympic National Park and Northern California’s Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park. Featuring the same core focuses as our Yosemite summer camps, participants in these programs learn outdoor skills, Leave No Trace principles, relationship skills, and environmental ethics in some of the world’s most iconic wilderness. Find out more about our wilderness summer camp programs below and visit our Scholarships page for information on our non-profit scholarship fund.

“As a 14-year-old, this adventure gave me great insight to leadership skills that I shall endeavor to use in my future. It was great character building for me. Although I was apprehensive about going alone, I built friendships that should last a long time. It has also helped me to personally overcome my anxiety, and I believe that it will serve as a lasting positive experience that I can draw upon for the rest of my life. If you are questioning if you should sign your child up for such an endeavor take my word that they will not regret the experience, and thank you for the rest of their lives.” –TripAdvisor, July 2019
