Exploration & Adventure for Campers Entering Grades 6-9
Senior Outpost is a unique program specifically for middle school campers who are ready for the excitement and exploration of an outdoor adventure program. It is designed to offer positive risk taking experiences and opportunities to try new activities. Each activity is intentionally chosen to advance each camper’s physical, social and emotional skills. Our Senior Outpost Program is a three-week session for middle schoolers located next to the Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve. Learn more about dates and rates.
Door to Door Transportation
Expertly trained and commercially licensed counselors create an engaging environment to welcome campers onto their van each morning. Each van group has its own rituals to make the van routes a unique and exciting part of camp. Learn more about transportation.
100% Outside and Unplugged
Outpost’s entirely outdoor environment allows our campers to reconnect with nature, get the exercise their bodies need and see their inner creativity spring back to life untethered to devices or at-home comforts.
Intentionally Chosen Adventures
Our High Ropes Course is a chance for groups to work collaboratively and develop teamwork, confidence and positive risk-taking skills. Kayaking in tandems strengthens communication skills and patience while hiking allows the group to bond, get to know each other, and share stories.
Challenge By Choice
All of our campers are empowered to articulate limits and be in complete control of their choices regarding participation in our challenging activities. While we encourage everyone to expand their boundaries, no one at Outpost is ever forced or pressured to participate in any activity beyond their comfort zone.
Our small group sizes and longer sessions give each camper the opportunity to genuinely connect with and keep friends. Many relationships that start at camp last a lifetime!
Strong Sense of Belonging
Each group’s unique sense of identity and inclusivity provides a safe platform for kids to take social risks. Every day our campers develop their physical, emotional and social skills by creating and maintaining positive peer friendships, leading group activities, trying new and silly things, and enjoying themselves outdoors.
We find that campers remember most the in-between moments filled with inside jokes, ridiculous games and silly conversations. From swearing knighthood to the Royal Teddy Bear of Smushmutterfly to intensely debating the proper techniques of frolicking, these are the stories you’ll hear from your campers over dinner.
