We know Kids! 50 Years of Leadership in Youth Outdoor Adventures

River & Trail Outfitters has been facilitating outdoor adventures for countless scouts, campers, school groups, churches, and families for 5 decades now, since 1972. The need for kids to have healthy, engaged, active outdoor experiences has never been greater. We know we can help, with our decades of experience serving various youth age groups!

Nature Kids Camp: June, July, August – 3 and 5 Day Sessions Available 

New in 2021, River & Trail is launching our own nature-based camp to share our knowledge and love of the outdoors with local kids and families. Campers will experience in hands-on fashion the natural gems in the tri-state area of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. We are fortunate to have three national parks and two rivers in our own community backyard. Rest assured that all activities will be age appropriate and with safety as the top priority. River & Trail has been fortunate to have teachers and educators as part of our camp formation or leadership team. Your kids will benefit from their expertise and experience.

Developing Kids’ Confidence, resourcefulness, resilience & more

Our goal in Nature Kids is to give kids 7-13 opportunities for positive experiences with Nature, and as a natural extension of this, have them gain confidence, a sense of connectedness to their natural environment, and develop leadership qualities such as responsibility, confidence, perseverance, resourcefulness, and a positive attitude.

Camp Activities: Outdoor Fun Activities & Challenges!

Parents:  Note that all adventures will be done at the  age-appropriate level for each age group!

*Many activities take place from the Brunswick Family Campground located between the Potomac River and C&O Canal

Nature Education and Leadership Skills Building

Day campers will enjoy leadership, art and nature education as well – all disguised in fun and adventure, of course! 

  • Activities and discussion that foster Leadership Qualities
  • Nature-based Art & Ecology
  • Games and time to regroup at our Brunswick Family Campground Base

So with all the known benefits of getting your kids outside, come join us this summer for a week or more of fun in the sun!
