Adventure Camp:

No Barriers Adventure Camp is…
NOT just a summer camp! We are a youth development program. We use outdoor adventure as a vehicle for
learning leadership skills, building confidence, promoting pro-social interactions. We encourage the kids
participating in our program to believe that they are among the coolest, most appreciated, dynamic and
capable individuals on the planet. We want our participants to realize what is within them is stronger than
what’s in their way.
Our Adventure Camp Counselors will…
● Participate in No Barriers’ extensive Staff Training

times. This responsibility begins upon the arrival of your first camper and ends when the last camper has been turned over
to their parents/guardian.
● Assist in teaching rock climbing, ropes course, mountain boarding.
● Directly lead night activities, nature hikes, camp cooking/cleaning, etc.
● Assume responsibility for leadership and guidance to those campers in daily living skills, with special attention to:

o Camper participation in all camp activities
o Camper personal growth, self-confidence and independence through group living.
● Maintain a positive attitude while serving as a good role model to campers in personal language, appearance, manners and
health habits
● Put campers needs before your own, making each camper feel like the most important child in the world

here...
