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.

-Parent, Build Your Own Bike

"My daughter talks a lot about the fellowships between participants and being able to share with the trip leaders. She also loved the fact that the leaders gave them the opportunities to lead. What I loved most was the fact that they brought the campers to their level - as peers."
- Parent, Cojourn

“I think we’re different from other programs because we minimize the barriers between guides and participants. We tread the line of partners and leaders, and that’s where the magic happens.”

- Cal, guide 2018-19

Our Partners

Our sister programs, Camp Lookout and Camp Carvela, operate under the same philosophical umbrella as Crystalaire. What we do in the wilderness, 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 in a two-night Crystalaire Adventure.

For more information or to view the camps’ complete summer schedule visit Camp Carvela here and Camp Lookout here.
