Extreme Camp Held

During the week of June 20-24, campers at Darke County Parks got extreme! Campers began the week getting to know each other quickly by having to work together at a challenge course at Camp Yale. After the challenge course they encouraged each other as each camper climbed to the top of a fifty foot tower and then hopped on a zip-line and sailed to the bottom. The second day, they were broken into teams and battled at a paintball course.

The whole group then headed up to Lake Loramie where they paddled through high winds. Everyone did an amazing job and took some time to rest by swimming at the beach. To finish up the week, campers headed to John Bryan State Park where they set up camp and set out on the trails. After a long afternoon of hiking, the campers enjoyed a delicious campfire meal. Then, it was back to the trails to check out scenic Clifton Gorge. After an exhausting day, everyone was ready for their s’mores and retired to their tent.

Overall, these teens thoroughly enjoyed their week at Darke County Parks Extreme Adventures Camp. Call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165 for more information on upcoming summer camps or visit our website at www.darkecountyparks.org.
