For the Camper that can't just pick one Adventure Camp, here is the "Best-of" Reel!  This is the proud off-spring of Duncan's Adventure & Gresko's Adventure, now combined into one wet 'n wild week.  Here is the "every camper" week where campers get a chance to sample some of the most popular activities Calleva has to offer. Unlike our Sampler Camp, Grunkan's Adventure DOES have an overnight along with its great line-up of LAND & WATER activities. A favorite amongst instructors that can shift adventures depending on conditions and areas, this mix of activities keeps campers on their toes! Campers get a healthy balance of staying dry, while also jumping in the water when the temperature starts to soar. Since campers are trying different activities, we try and keep this camp more fun and introductory than delving deeply into hard technical skills.
