Summertime Adventures on the Summit

thSummer’s coming!  While planning your vacation or trip up to your cabin this summer, there’s a great option to consider for the younger members of the group.  When hanging with the grown ups ceases to be fun or you are just in the mood for a bit of adult time, check out the camps for kids at Sugarbowl.  They are offering Summer Adventure camps in partnership with the Gateway Mountain Center. Gateway is a leader in outdoor experiential adventure activities.  Their mission is to open young people’s hearts and minds to the natural world; we engage, impel and empower them to become knowledgeable, passionate, conscientious stewards – of themselves, their communities, the environment and our world.

Executive Director, Peter Mayfield, has an amazing resume.  He has designed and delivered creative and successful outdoor educational programs for thousands of California youth.  Peter has served as Chief Guide for the Yosemite Mountaineering School, and as Chief Examiner for the Professional Ski Instructors Association (Far West). As the founder and General Partner of CityRock Gym, the first large urban climbing gym, Peter was a catalyst for the growth of indoor climbing in North America. As a consultant Peter has designed and developed adventure programs for Disney, Discovery Communications, and Posades Resorts.  As a creative mountaineer Peter has succeeded on first ascents on Yosemite’s El Captain and Half Dome, climbed new routes in Peru, Patagonia, and the Alaska Range, and pioneered difficult snowboard descents.  And he has amassed an equally impressive staff.

Camps are arranged for specific timeframes and for specific ages, so that the activities will be age appropriate.  Campers can start as young as four years of age with a nature camp combining easy hikes, water play fun and nature art, storytelling and yoga.

Older campers can enjoy spectacular hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, mountain biking , stand up paddle boarding, swimming, and whitewater rafting or inflatable kayaking.

And for the oldest age group there is also  an Adventure, Leadership, and Stewardship camp.  In addition to the fabulous outdoor adventures the campers will learn to become a thoughtful citizen of the world . The leadership portion will focus on communication, teaching skills, goal setting, becoming role models, and problem solving. Stewardship themed activities include, a conservation project, studying and employing Leave no Trace practices, teaching younger kids, and learning about sustainability and personal stewardship.
