The Extreme Explorers (or “Extremes”) take adventure to a new level. Each day, campers choose from options with a range of biking difficulty.* On-site choices include rock climbing, high and low ropes course activities and gardening. Some Extremes choose short bike rides, such as to the State Forest (to build forts, play games or play disc golf ), Russell’s Way beach (to play games and swim), Tom Nevers (to play street hockey or kickball), or Dead Horse Valley (for epic games of capture the flag). Others choose medium bike rides, such as to Polpis to kayak, or to the Cranberry Bogs to play “Camouflage.” Still others challenge themselves to go off-road biking through the Moors, or even to bike all the way to both ends of the island on the “east to west challenge” Regardless of what they choose, Extreme Explorers are sure to deepen their relationships with the environment, with their peers, and with themselves---and to have a lot of fun in the process!
Extremes are dropped off and picked up each day in the Strong Wings bike camp area (down a trail to the left just after you turn off at 9 Nobadeer Farm Road), unless arrangements are made for them to travel on their own. Groups are small (student to staff ratio averages 7:1.)
*Extremes must possess sufficient biking skills in order to participate. Off-road bikes are required.
