"My daughter described activities with enthusiasm as she kept saying 'And then...' My daughter asked me the cost of the camp, when I told her, her response was 'That was worth it!' I have never seen my daughter so happy about a camp."

Elisabeth, Camp Parent

"Josh had a fantastic experience! He made new friends and was able to do so many different activities. He was a little wary about going, but came home happy and talking nonstop about everything they did..."

Katie, Camp Parent

"My son had a great experience as a first timer at Adventure Links. His little brother can't wait to go next year too!"

Maria, Camp Parent

"My son says that Adventure Links camp 'is exhausting, tiring, fun, exhilarating, and a stamina workout'. He can't wait to try another AL [Adventure Links] camp next summer."

Kathy, Camp Parent

"She had a great time. It was interesting and she learned new things that she would not have learned elsewhere. Highly recommend it to kids who like to be outside."

Melissa, Camp Parent

Our Camps

Adventure Links Day Camps at Hemlock Overlook Regional Park offer an exciting introduction to outdoor adventures. Our options provide opportunities for return campers to raise their level of challenge year after year. Each of our day camps will meet at one of our convenient pickup locations located throughout Northern Virginia each morning and afternoon. From the pickup spots campers will depart on an Adventure Links vehicle to that day's activity, making this one of the most convenient summer camp options.

Classic Adventure

Sample Itinerary

Grades 3rd - 5th

A day camp that encompasses a spectrum of classic adventure activities, Classic Adventure begins with a day of our signature team building course and high Flying Squirrel element to help campers get to know each other. Campers will then explore Hemlock Overlook for three days by hand and foot (climbing, paddling, hiking and Outdoor Living Skills), and take a caving day field trip!

Ultimate Adventure

Sample Itinerary

Grades 6th - 8th

Structured similarly to Classic Adventure, Ultimate Adventure ventures out a little further. Campers will enjoy our Zip Line as part of our signature team building course day, go kayaking, and even explore further heights with a rock climbing field trip to Carderock, MD! This camp is a great next step for Classic Adventure graduates, and also suitable for campers both new and experienced in outdoor adventure activities.
