Wilderness Adventure Program
Established in 1990
Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing was founded with the vision to create an all-outdoor program that builds character, confidence, and leadership skills. Unlike traditional summer camps, Wilderness Adventure prides itself on being an all outdoor, adventure and backpacking camp. The owner believes Environmental Education is about building a foundation of skills and experiences from which a confident and well-balanced child can grow.
The program is full of adventure activities, including rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, backpacking, camping, rafting, rappelling, outdoor living skills and Leave No Trace education. Children also spend unscheduled time exploring and connecting with nature in the mountains of western Virginia. All program equipment and adventure activity gear is provided. All activities are explained from a beginner level while still having additional challenges for more advanced participants. We offer 7 day, 14 day and 21 day trips for ages 8-11, 11-13 and 14-17. For older age groups specialized trips for specific adventure sports are offered so that teenagers can further develop their skills and eventually gain the knowledge and confidence necessary to continue them through adulthood.
