21. Camp Winding Gap
Camp Winding Gap is a private summer camp for boys and girls ages 6 through 14. Since the camp property is adjacent to two National Forests, it has unlimited wilderness resources including waterfalls and miles of hiking and riding trails just outside the door! Our campers learn to canoe on the small camp lake and progress to the larger lakes and rivers nearby. Hikers and horseback riders enjoy many trails that lead to waterfalls and rivers.

25. Broadreach Adventure Experience
We go all over the globe! We have programs in the Caribbean, Turks and Caicos, Costa Rica, Egypt, Honduras, Australia, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. We keep our program size small with just 10-14 participants, making Broadreach very different than camp. This is an experiential adventure! Unlike traditionally structured camps where every activity is scheduled into time slots, Broadreach programs are flexible and involve you in all aspects of the experience. Unlike a traditional "camper", you are asked to take responsibility and few things are done for you. We have specific goals, but how the adventure unfolds depends on you and the group. We need everyone's participation, cooperation and leadership to make it happen.

28. Aloha Adventure Photo Camp
Established in 1999, AAC offers teens (boys & girls) ages 11 to 18 the opportunity to learn photography at their own pace while enjoying the abundant beauty and adventures of "The Magic Isle" Maui! Classes are offered for beginners, intermediate, and advanced levels of photography. After a 1 hour photo class in the morning, our photographers and campers depart on an exciting daily activity in which they take their cameras on a fun filled day of learning while exploring the island of Maui. Campers will travel around the island visiting places like the Old Town of Lahaina (above) and many other adventures like swimming; hiking to hidden waterfalls; exploring the ancient ruins of old Hawaii; mountain biking down Haleakala Volcano (37 miles from 10,023 feet to sea level); sail to the island of Lana'i (so we can swim with real dolphins, tropical fish, sea turtles, and many other varieties of sea life); and even catch a glimpse of a humpback whale or two... if we are lucky!

29. Camp Cooinda
Cooinda is a special style of camp for young people between the ages of 12 and 19 years. Programs offer 7 or 9 days of boating and relaxed outdoor living with friends and exciting things to do. Enjoy tent living, great beaches, camp fire cooking and overnight expeditions around the Gippsland Lakes in Eastern Victoria, including Cooinda's own island! All activities are done in small groups of campers who are around the same age. Campers sleep in groups of 4 or 5 with a group leader. Activity groups usually combine a girls' group with a boys' group to make an activity group of 8 - 10 campers and two leaders. We call this a patrol. The first couple of days are spent on the water, learning the basics of canoeing, kayaking and safety. After this, each patrol can plan where they want to take the boats and camp overnight around the lakes. For ideas of where groups can go around the Lakes, check out the Destinations Anywhere page in the Campers section. If you like getting out on the water and making waves, you'll love canoeing, kayaking and sailing at Cooinda. Relax in the evening with a bit of night fishing, cook up a feast on an open fire and listen to a guitar under the stars.
