Teen Adventure Camp

Our TAC program, short for Teen Adventure Camp, offers an outdoor adventure experience with a backbone of the CDW community values. There are two TAC sessions each summer, each two weeks in length. This two-week trip requires determination, teamwork, and an open mind to the outdoors. Explore with your team and experienced guides while learning new skills and pushing your physical limits. The classic CDW community – with tougher terrain.

CDW is the base camp for this trip – you stop in once or twice during the two weeks session other than pick-up and drop-off. The rest of the trip consists of one adventure after another. The trip itinerary includes virtually every outdoor pursuit that the NY-VA corridor has to offer. A few example activities are listed below:

  • Backpacking
  • Hiking
  • White water rafting
  • Rock climbing
  • Mountain biking
  • Canoeing

Get ready for outdoor activities every day, cookouts every evening, campouts every night, and every minute in between filled with outdoor action.  Your TAC family includes other teens with the same zeal for exploration, plus two skilled TAC directors to help you along the way.

No prior experience is required to be a TAC.  The directors help you every step of the way, sharing the skills needed to enjoy the activities and surroundings, while keeping you safe too.  Your success on the trip depends only on your attitude – excitement, focus, and optimism are all mandatory!

We would like to note that although we support the physical and emotional growth of all children in our community, the TAC program is particularly physically intensive. If you have any questions or concerns about this aspect and your child’s ability, we’re happy to work with you to figure out if this program is right for your child.
