The #1-rated summer camp in Yosemite National Park! Throughout the summer, Lasting Adventures guides youth ages 11-18 on high adventure excursions in and around the Yosemite backcountry. While having fun, making new friends, and learning about the outdoors, these adventures focus on positive youth development. Staffed by professional educators and naturalists, our mission is to use the natural environment and outdoor activities to teach youth the necessary skills and attitudes for living successful lives. Through our program participants are challenged and rewarded with opportunities to improve their senses of self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence. Along with creating lasting memories, it is our goal that participants finish this adventure with a greater knowledge of themselves, the world, and the environment around them.
