Aggie Adventure Camp

The Campus Recreation, Outdoor Programs Department believes in adventure and discovery…for all ages! Aggie Adventure Camp is Campus Recreation’s newest youth summer camp led by the Outdoor Programs Department for children ages 10-13. Camp is 4 sessions, each a week long, throughout the month of June. Aggie Adventure Camp is a new leg of Aggie Rec Camp, and will follow a very similar schedule and policies, with different activities.

Campers will spend as much time outside as possible (weather permitting) and will get a chance to learn and participate in multiple outdoor sports, such as rock climbing, hiking, water sports, and mountain biking. No experience required. Campers will also experience weekly field trips, and educational activities, all with a focus of outdoor learning and exploration.

The Aggie Adventure Camp counselors are highly skilled outdoor enthusiasts, certified in, at the very least, Adult & Child CPR/AED and First Aid. Campers will receive the care and attention they need with our 5-to-1 camper-to-staff ratio. Campers will travel in groups of 10 for their outdoor adventures. Our staff is under the direction of Ashley Brown, Camp Director. Come join the fun through education, safety, and outdoor adventure!

Frequently Asked Questions

What should my camper wear to camp each day?

We recommend all campers wear comfortable clothing such as a t-shirt, shorts, or any type of athletic wear. Campers must wear close-toed shoes (tennis shoes), no sandals or flip-flops. Parents will be notified prior to days in which we may get a little messy or have a field trip that will require different attire.

As we get closer to camp, parents will know what activities happen on which day, so campers can dress more accordingly.

Can I sign-up my 9-year-old?

Campers must be between the ages of 10–13 to attend any of the Aggie Adventure Camp sessions. Sports Camp is for 8-14 year olds, and Rec Camps is for 6-14 year olds.

What should my child bring to camp? Is it okay for my child to bring personal items such as portable video game system, call phone, play cards, jewelry, etc.?

Each day, campers must bring a packed lunch, water bottle, and hat. Parents will be notified prior if campers need to bring anything else, or dress differently for different activities. All gear needed for outdoor activities, including helmets, harnesses, life-jackets, etc. will be provided.

We ask that all campers do NOT bring any valuable or personal items with them to camp. These items could get lost or broken during daily camps activities.

Will my child have adequate supervision throughout the day? What certifications do the staff members have?

Safety is our #1 priority! Children will travel in small groups (of 10) to ensure they are appropriately supervised throughout the day. For high-risk outdoor activities, children will be in groups of 10 or less, with a minimum of 3 counselors, and the Camp Director on-call. If group sizes increase or decrease, more Camp Counselors will be added to keep every camper safe. Camp Counselors will carry first aid supplies on outdoor adventures.

The staff members are all trained in American Red-Cross CPR/AED and First Aid, Sexual Assault, COVID-19 policies and procedures and a background check will be completed. While enjoying outdoor areas, we will follow U.S. Forest Service policies and procedures.

Can I pick up my camper early from camp?

Yes. However, the staff cannot escort individual campers from scheduled events to meet those picking them up. Parents must make prior arrangements to pick up their child at a schedule location. Parents will receive a weekly schedule for their camper, and they will know if their camper is out enjoying an outdoor activity, or on campus.

Where do campers eat lunch?

Campers will eat at various locations throughout the week. Some days, campers may have an adventure-filled day, and might eat picnic-style on a hiking trail, or at a rock-climbing area. Lunch will always be scheduled into the day and campers will often eat on campus in one of the USU Campus recreation facilities.

Are campers separated into group based on age?

We will strive to organize campers based on age, with the higher priority being groups of 10 or less. While some activities may require campers to be put into their age group, a majority of our activities allow campers to participate together.
