Our Campers

Ajax Adventure Campers have the freedom to choose what they want to do. During the morning activity period, each counselor offers a different activity. After the announcements, each camper picks which activity he/she will participate in for that morning. A typical day might see several campers go rock climbing, others mountain biking, another group fishing, others floating, still others choosing to participate in a morning of crazy activities such as rotten fruit golf or horse poo baseball, etc, etc. After lunch (provided by camp), the counselors announce new activities and the campers again choose whichever activity they want to participate in for the afternoon. We hope all campers participate in an overnight trip while at camp and encourage them to do so by providing all the necessary gear and expertise. We love being adventurous, so if you have an idea for an activity, convince a counselor and some campers to go do whatever it is you imagined.

Since every camper gets an Ajax Adventure Camp hoodie and there are over 30 clubs of which they can earn patches, all campers can customize their experience and earn their way into as many clubs as they can.
