    Outdoor Adventurers Camp is designed to get boys and girls ages 9-12 outside each day to explore the Wissahickon Valley. The camp is small, limited to 15 campers and three counselors, allowing us great mobility and the ability to tackle activities that larger groups could not.

    We will hike the trails and learn about native flora and fauna. We will visit the Lenape Indian statue on our daylong hike to the Wissahickon environmental education center to learn how the Native Americans lived in the valley for thousands of years. We will work together and build trust in one another on the elements of the SCH Academy ropes course, high in the canopy of the tulip poplars. We will learn the basics of archery in the woods behind SCH Academy. We will venture off campus, spending the day canoeing on the Brandywine River. We will visit Ringing Rock Park and explore a huge boulder field where the rocks ring and hike a streambed to a 20-foot waterfall. We will visit the Philadelphia Rock Gym to learn the basics of rock climbing.
