Summer Adventure Camp FAQs

Where is Adventure Camp, anyhow?

Adventure Camp is located near the Theodore Wirth Boat Launch on the shores of Wirth Lake. The driveway into camp is located between Theodore Wirth Parkway and Xerxes Avenue, on Glenwood Avenue.

If you would like a map, please email Andy Harris at harris@loppet.org

When are pick up and drop off times for camp?

Drop offs usually arrive from around 8:45 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Campers get picked up shortly after 4:00 p.m.

What happens if it rains?

IF rain / weather will interfere with normal camp activities, Adventure Camp will run from 9:00 – 4:00 at Theodore Wirth Chalet

IF rain / weather will make outside activities unsafe, Adventure Camp will cancel for the day (this is rare!).

Emails to parents will be sent out to parents the morning of any day where normal camp activities will be changed to notify them of the plan. Please check your emails regularly!

Does my child need to bring their own bike? Or rollerski gear?

No, but if your child has a equipment that they want to use, they are welcome to bring it to camp. Overnight storage of bikes and skis costs $15.00 / week.

Does my child need to bring a swimsuit?

No, but it may be helpful. Swimming is an Adventure Camp favorite — as is learning how to rescue a canoe when you tip over!

Is lunch provided, or should my child pack and bring their own lunch?

Campers should plan on bringing their own lunch. Snacks will be provided throughout the day.
