Camp Theme Descriptions
Thank you for your interest in Grand Adventure Leadership Camps!
Grand Adventure Leadership Camps would not be able to take place without the help of all our wonderful sponsors. There are still a lot of fun details being confirmed with these generous organizations and business, additional activities may be added to the camps. Please check back in for updates!
Lead staff members for each camp will be certified teachers who will design engaging learning activities that fit the themes of each week and facilitate hands-on, collaborative learning. Daily integration of WV Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts Learning Standards will occur throughout multiple venues of hands-on learning activities. Leadership will play a large role in Grand Adventure Leadership Camps. Leadership skills will be implemented throughout the week that will give/that will engage campers in learning leadership skills through the integration of Covey’s 7 Habits for Happy Kids and related curriculum. Team building and career exploration will also be developed through the leadership activities.
During all camp weeks, campers will experience all that Grand Vue Park offers such as swimming, miniature golf, disc golf, nature trails, outdoor classrooms, aerial park, team building fitness course, and more!
Nature Detectives: Grab your detective hat and magnifying glass and head to Grand Vue Park for this awesome nature camp that will have campers learning about animals specific to the park, identifying ecosystems, and getting down to the bottom of why nature is so important. During this week, campers will investigate nature throughout the park through Geocaching, Tree Identification Program, The GVP Outdoor Classroom, birding walks, discovery hikes, and many guest speaker presentations. Using technology, participants will further look into nature beyond their immediate surroundings and participate in building their own habitats for nature by creating and observing terrariums and aquarium life. Our nature habitats will be sponsored by SMART CENTRE, GRAND VUE PARK, and Neil Burkett, Nationwide Insurance.
