Minerva ActionQuest Camp is a fast-paced sailing, hiking and shore exploration outdoor adventure camp that visits 10 different islands on a voyage that stretches from the BVI to the island of Antigua and back.
The Leewards form the Eastern boundary of the Caribbean and include impressive tropical islands like Saba, Statia, St. Kitts, Nevis and St. Martin. Balmy trade winds, lush rainforests, and pink sandy beaches make this an ideal destination for a Caribbean summer camp abroad.
The cultural and geological diversity is enormous; customs and currencies change as often as the language is spoken. Sailing aboard a 50-ft monohull or 46-ft catamaran, this outdoor adventure camp’s main focus is sailing and island exploration, yet there will be time to take advantage of these incredible waters by scuba diving, snorkeling, water skiing, and wakeboarding. Shoreside, the mountainous terrain, such as The Quill – an almost perfectly symmetrical extinct volcano on the island of Nevis, offers one of the most challenging and rewarding Caribbean hiking adventures.
