Adventure Outpost

Adventure Outpost (AO), located two miles from Main Camp, is Fort’s summer-only youth camp site. It is situated by our private and pristine Blair Lake. Trained Program Directors, Counselors and Staff have designed a place where young people can take age-appropriate steps of maturity. Camper to Staff ratio is close to 2:1. Campers experience adventure within community, while enjoying activities with a purpose. AO is the perfect place for your child to experience life, personal growth and adventure within a structured program built for kids.

Facilities at Adventure Outpost
