CHARLESTON SUMMER CAMPS & AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Enriching outdoor adventure programs for kids.
We all need time outdoors. As history has progressed more and more people are living in urban locations, decreasing their bond with the outdoors and nature. The problem is that we need the time outdoors to truly thrive as human beings. This is even more true for children. But how do you get kids outdoors in a world of endless electronic entertainment, social media, and countless distractions.
The After School Adventure Programs at Wild Blue Ropes are designed to help with just that. These programs are filled with active time outdoors, providing incredible physical and mental health benefits to children, as well as being a lot of fun. Our incredibly passionate team will help guide your kids through experiential learning that will not only teach them to push themselves and expand their limits, but also redefine their capability as people.
Our mission is simple, to make a positive impact on each child while having fun.

Plenty of unstructured play allows our campers to explore, make-believe, and discover within the grounds of the Wild Blue Adventure Park.
Once fully proficient on the Explorers Gateway course, campers will advance to the Wild Blue Challenge Course at the culmination of camp. A celebration of individual achievements caps off the week.
