Adventure Camp for Challenging Youth: The Meramec Adventure Learning Ranch will be holding a 5-Day Summer Adventure Camp for Challenging Youth. The Ranch is one of the most extensive adventure bases in the Midwest and conducts all of the therapeutic and adventure programs for the largest residential agency in Missouri.

The purpose of Adventure Camp is to inspire the growth of character, personal efficacy, purpose, and connectedness in young men who are facing challenges in their lives and may be on the wrong path. This camp was created to give teens and their families an opportunity to refresh, reset, and grow in their personal lives and their relationships.

For many youth, a week of a high-adventure summer camp led by skilled, caring, and compassionate staff who have extensive experience serving youth in similar situations can be just what is needed.

CAMP ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
