Outdoor Adventures at SMA Teen Summer Camp

As an outdoor adventure summer camp, we give our campers the opportunity to challenge themselves and have fun outdoors every single day! Step into your harness or saddle, strap on your helmet, and off we go!

Rock Climbing

Adventure-summer-camp-for-teenagers.jpgWe love to rock climb at SMA! Whether you're a beginner or an expert, we have a climb around camp that's perfect for you. We even have real rocks on the camp property: Donation Rocks. They are the premier climbing destination in central PA, and literally right in our driveway!

If you have only climbed on an indoor climbing wall, you're in for a real treat once you experience the thrill of climbing on real rocks. If rock climbing is something you love or want to try, Stone Mountain Adventures is the camp for you! 

Mountain Biking

Central Pennsylvania offers some of the best biking conditions in the Eastern United States. With the development of the Allegrippis trail by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA), this area has become quite a hotspot for mountain biking.

We also offer a biking program for campers who want to take advantage of our proximity to the Allegrippis Trail and ride almost every day. We call this the Mountain Bike Masters program.
