Experience Adventure Camp: social skills learning through science exploration. At Adventure Camp, we are strong believers in the ability of our youth to succeed by learning social skills through science exploration. Our programming and activities are designed to help our youth reach their goals and fulfill their highest potential. We started Adventure Camp to give kids with social needs the opportunity to expand their social experiences in a fun and interactive camp, while using their interests and incorporating science into summer learning.
