What are Adventure Weekends?

One weekend each month, Adam’s Camp hosts experiences where your camper can enjoy time with other campers. For these weekends, parents and caregivers drop their campers off on a Friday, and pick them up on a Sunday (times will be specified for each experience). These experiences could be in the Denver metro area or locations up to approximately one hour away from Denver (ex: Colorado Springs). However, parents and caregivers will not be required to make long drives to drop off and pick up their campers. We will set a location in the Denver area where campers will be dropped off and picked up.

When you register your camper, you may notice that not every month may be available for your camper. This is because certain weekend experiences are designated for 18+ while other weekends may be for those under 18 years old.

Adventure Weekends

Adventure Weekends Overview

Adventure Weekends are composed of 10 campers (the maximum amount), 2 counselors, 4 volunteers and 1 Adam’s camp staff personnel to oversee the experience. Even more exciting, these weekends are theme-based! The theme will determine the types of activities and excursions that campers see and do. Although some activities may be similar to ones campers do at Adventure Camp (which is hosted in the summertime), we continue to implement brand new activities since the Adventure Weekend locations are different each month.

Many Adventure Weekends are designed to be co-ed activities, but a few Adventure Weekends will be broken into female-only or male-only trips. This allows females and males to engage in events that may be more appealing and specific to the types of activities that interest them in their current stage of life. Regardless, whether a weekend is co-ed or gender-specific, sleeping quarters for males and females will always remain separate. The sleeping quarters will also always be in a domestic-type housing where each camper will have a bed, access to a restroom and a full kitchen, so food will be properly prepared.

Types of Activities you can Expect

More specific details and information regarding each weekend will be released. The specifics will be decided based on location, time of year, weather patterns and other logistics.

  • Basketball
  • Pool
  • Ping pong
  • Foosball
  • Swimming
  • Shopping
  • Ropes courses
  • Scavenger hunts
  • Volleyball
  • Many more!

Campers and Parents Love Adam’s Camp

I never have a problem leaving Rachel since she is so warmly welcomed.

Diane Greenlaw

Those counselors are incredible human beings. They give it there all and seem so excited to meet the campers. I always want to cry happy tears. My daughter looks so forward to this all year long!

Kelley Elliot

I always have fun dropping Annie off! She can never wait to get rid of me! That's good!

Sherry Bruff

We could look around and help our son set up his space and make sure he was all set. They knew some of his interests and immediately started engaging him.

Jen Trotter

Great way for our special kiddos to learn to spread their independent wings in a fun and safe environment. He said "best camp EVER" when I picked him up

Joanne Sherman

Dusty accomplished ZIPLINE! Yeah, a goal he had wanted to do for awhile.

Dustin Scrage

Eric is much more verbal and confident around others and in situations where he doesn't always know what will be happening. This is his 3rd year and each year he comes back more self assured and happily makes decisions for himself.

Crystal Nordholm

They got her to go on a hike!! She never hikes! And she loved it!!

Dee Dee Nuss

Counselors went above and beyond caring for and encouraging the campers. The smiles, the pictures, the different activities are awesome!

Cheri Bjornsrud

Wonderful volunteers, excellent professionals and wide variety of activities. Camp fosters independence for campers and parents who often don't trust others caring for their special need children as well as we would. The excellent counselors, the ratio of campers to staff and volunteers is amazing. The activities are diverse to appeal to all kids.

Melissa Brill

I would emphasize the great way the campers are able to meet new friends, learn how to manage in the community, learn new activities that they don't try at home, learn leadership and most of all gain independence. Your camper gets to be a kid at Adam's camp, just like everyone else. There are no "differences" at camp.

Karen Kullby

Adam's Camp gives children with special needs the opportunity to have the "typical" summer camp experience, in a safe and nurturing environment.

Amy Cawlfield

Take comfort that their child is being well cared for, so relax and enjoy a few days on your own, or with others that may not get as much attention

Bryan Strait

Knowing your child is safe and having fun makes the quiet time an opportunity for renewal and reinvigoration.
