About Avid4 Adventure

The mission of Avid4 Adventure is to provide kids and teens with the skills and confidence to choose active outdoor lifestyles.  We transport campers to authentic local recreation areas and teach them to climb, bike, paddle, hike and thrive in the outdoors. More importantly, we teach kids and teens to assess risks, use sound judgment, and believe in their abilities. Through summer day camps, overnight camps, school programs, and events, Avid4 Adventure inspires thousands of kids and teens every year to lead active lifestyles.

The Story of Avid4 Adventure

Avid4 Adventure was born out of my desire to give kids a love of outdoor activity and to ensure the future caretaking of our planet. With declining youth participation in sports, decreasing physical education budgets in schools and increasing screen time, I saw a need not just to get kids outside, but to set them on a trajectory of lifelong outdoor adventure and stewardship. Being active outdoors is not only good for kids physically. Outdoor experiences are powerful and empowering. They are punctuation points in our lives that shape our confidence and character. Our camps give kids both a place to start and plenty of room to grow outdoors as they build skills in a wide range adventure sports, including mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing and paddling. From helping a 3-year-old achieve better balance on a strider to teaching a 12-year-old to navigate single track terrain, we build kids’ skills, confidence, grit and determination, teaching a new generation of adventurers to thrive in the outdoors. – David Secunda, Founder
