Youth Camps & Teen Programs

Outdoor recreation can be a lifelong pursuit with rewards at every step of the way. Since 1994, Center Activities has offered an incredible opportunity for youth between the ages of 6 and 17. All of our youth and teen programming emphasize building confidence, encouraging teamwork and learning outdoor, aquatic and fitness skills in a safe, fun, supportive environment.

Center Activities has over thirty years of experience offering outdoor programs, with an enthusiastic staff that brings extensive experience in outdoor recreation and a deep commitment to safe instruction. Individualized instruction is an essential element of the camps and is made possible by keeping the participant to instructor ratio low at 6 to 1.

No Previous Experience Needed
No previous experience is needed to participate in any of the camps. For our Aquatic Camps, each student must demonstrate that he or she is water safe by swimming a short distance using any stroke and by treading water while wearing a life jacket. Camps are designed to accommodate youth ages 10 and older. 

Scholarship Fund
With the generous support of local agencies such as the Humboldt Area Foundation, Humboldt Sponsors and the California Department of Boating and Waterways, we are able to offer qualified low-income youth an opportunity to participate at a reduced fee. Scholarships are based on a sliding scale with applications reviewed on an individual basis. Contact Center Activities for additional information and a scholarship application. Scholarships are awarded based on financial & family needs, camp space availability and timely application. Download a scholarship application today!
