Conrad Weiser Teen Adventure & Leadership Programs

Campers will build relationships and make friends by spending nights around a campfire, cooking meals and sleeping in tents all over Pennsylvania.  Our 2016 campers can join us on Adventure-Palooza (rollercoasters, caving, zip-lines, paintball, etc.), the Big River Adventure (a canoe trip down the Susquehanna River), or the Adirondack Experience (2-week backpacking trip in New York).  For more information, visit our Adventure Trips page.

These trips are for young people ages 12-16.  Register for these trips on the Camp Conrad Weiser Registration Form.  All trips will be directed by Cory Evans, our South Mountain Adventures Director.  Cory has a B.S. in Expeditionary Studies from SUNY Plattsburgh.
