Adventure Quest Camp

Our Adventure Quest camps consists of a sea kayak expedition in the beautiful Southern Gulf Islands. This is a ‘mobile’ program – we meet the campers on day one at the beach where they launch for their 5 day out trip. After getting to know their guides and learning the basic skills they need to navigate the sheltered ocean waterways of the Gulf Islands, the group heads out to their first campsite. Technical skill instruction and leadership development is the focus of this program, with short paddling days in protected waters to helping to facilitate these goals. This experience gives participants strong skills and experience sea kayak camping with a shorter time commitment in comparison to our leadership programing.


Information in this booklet is updated every year, and all of the information is vital for your camper(s) to have a successful experience. Please read carefully even if you have been to camp before! Life at camp is different from the routines and patterns of home. Taking the time to talk with your camper(s) about their upcoming experience is an important step in preparing. Setting a positive tone and clarifying expectations can really help your child make the adjustment. In doing this, your child will take the most out of their Camp Thunderbird opportunity.
