Summer Adventure Camp

Celebrating Our 20th Summer


Over Nine Hours of Nurturing Care and Summer Fun for Children 2 Months to 12 Years

Deer Valley's Summer Adventure Camp is based out of the Children's Center at Snow Park Lodge and will be entertaining kids for its twentieth summer. Surrounded by incredible mountains with hiking trails, hillside playgrounds and duck ponds, this state-licensed center provides a separate 'home base' for each age group. The center has built-in nooks for entertainment and performances, a bouldering rock climbing wall and a full supply of craft projects, games, puzzles, videos and books to complement our outdoor activities. Counselor ratios for infants are one to three; for toddlers, one to four; and, for older children, five to eight. The center is a nut-free environment. Join us for a great summer of fun at our Summer Adventure Camp. Please call 435-645-6648 to make reservations.

Related Information

The Counselors

Our Camp counselors are trained professionals experienced in childcare and safety.  Many of them work in our children's ski programs during the winter or our Deer Valley Academy during the school year.  The Counselor/Camper ratios are 1 to 3 for infants, 1 to 4 for toddlers and 1 for a group of 5 - 8 for older children.

The Campers

Sunflowers are infants aged 2 through 11 months. We provide a safe play time and quiet time for your little ones in our state-licensed child care facility.

Grasshoppers (12 - 18 months and walking), Little Ramblers (19 - 23 months) and Ramblers (2 years) enjoy play time with friends, music and movement, art and many other organized activities in a safe, fun environment.  We have separate rooms, counselors and activities for each group in accordance with developmental licensing requirements.

Trekkers (ages 3 through 4 years and completely potty trained) are lead in small group settings while they have fun discovering nature and making new friends. Exciting local outings are planned weekly to explore our mountain environment.

Explorers (5 through 6 years of age) and Mountaineers (7 through 12 years of age) participate in creative activities, nature discovery studies and team-oriented sporting events under the guidance of enthusiastic counselors. Exciting field trips are planned weekly to explore a variety of recreational resources in the area. Hiking, mountain biking*, basic biking skills*, swimming, rollerblading, scavenger hunts, wet and wild water games, volunteer projects and creative arts and crafts are all part of this fun and educational program.

*Bicycles are not provided. Please click here for Deer Valley bike rentals.

The Projects

Each summer, the campers participate in S.A.V.E. (Summer Adventure Volunteer Effort), which raises money through an art show for a selected organization. Some of our past recipients have been the Carmen B. Pingree School for Children with Autism, Recycle Utah, Wrightsville Beach Sea Turtle Project, Blind Children's Learning Center and People's Health Clinic. In 2014, the kids raised over $950 in funds and children's books for the People's Health Clinic.

The annual Art Show, held the first week of August, allows the campers to proudly display the many and varied art projects they worked on so diligently all summer. The pieces are available to purchase for a donation to that year's S.A.V.E. project.
