For the Camper that can't just pick one Adventure Camp, here is the "Best-of" Reel!  This is a Sampler Camp with an overnight - the proud off-spring of Duncan & Gresko's adventure programs. But unlike our Sampler Camp, Grunkan's Adventure does have an overnight along with its great line-up of activities. A favorite amongst instructors that can shift adventures depending on conditions and areas, this mix of activities keeps campers on their toes!  Since campers are trying different activities, we keep this camp more fun and introductory than delving deeply into hard technical skills. 

Our fun-filled week long curriculum prepares campers for the Thursday overnight - the culmination of the week.

Grunkan's LAND - Basic Itinerary:

  • Monday: Cave
  • Tuesday: Climb @ Sugarloaf, MD
  • Wednesday: Orienteering/Geocaching
  • Thursday/Friday & Overnight options: Backpacking @ Annapolis Rocks or some other wild and wonderful place! 
  • Daily itinerary may shuffle order, but activities will remain those listed unless weather or environmental conditions prevent them.

Grunkan's WATER - Basic Itinerary: 

  • Monday: Raft @ Harper's Ferry
  • Tuesday: Duckie 
  • Wednesday: SUP  
  • Thursday/Friday & Overnight options: Canoe adventures @ Potomac River or some other wild and wonderful place! 
  • Daily itinerary may shuffle order, but activities will remain those listed unless weather or environmental conditions prevent them.

Basic Needs list: Water bottle, shorts and T-Shirt, bathing suit and towel, closed-toe water AND land shoes, lunch & snack. Due to new Md State requirements all campers must bring their own Sunscreen and Bugspray to camp each day WITH their name clearly written on the bottles. Please note - we do NOT have any facilities to keep lunches bought from home cool during the day. 

Optional: shade hat, sunglasses w/ strap. Flip-flops & Crocs are not suitable. Calleva provides all safety/technical gear. 

Special Considerations: Although 'Grunkan's Land' is primarily land-based, all campers will have the opportunity to cool off in the water at some point in the day. 

Rain Plan: We are aware that there are concerns regarding Rain & Storms at camp and especially on overnights.  For any programs that we can continue to do the activities with happy campers we will do so. If for any reason the rain or storm has us stop the activity, then all groups have an alternative plan and location under cover. For adverse weather (such as severe storms), all activities have nearby shelters or use Calleva bus as a temporary shelter.
