What parents and participants say
[My son] has actually jumped on the bike repair and supply volunteer work for local charities. His sister is doing a school project to help raise funds for supplies to repair the bikes and get helmets, locks, and lights for recipients. This all started because of your [program] last year.

Our sister programs, Camp Lookout and Camp Carvela, operate under the same philosophical umbrella as Crystalaire. What we do in a wilderness setting, they do in a residential setting. Many trip participants start with a camp session but continue their experience through Crystalaire Adventures. Both camps also offer add-on adventures, meaning campers can participate in a session at Camp Lookout or Carvela, then participate on a Crystalaire Adventures.
