Urban Adventure offers teens intensive instruction in kayaking, rock climbing and sailing, as well as opportunities to participate in more traditional sports such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, and ice skating.

Urban Adventure Camp


Campers receive sports conditioning through dry-land activities and strength and cardio training circuits. Campers also learn a variety of sports including kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, sailing, cycling, boxing, fencing and rock climbing. Campers put their newly acquired skills to use on short kayak and sailing trips, weekly Urban Game competitions and weekly off-site excursions to various locations.

The kayak program uses a variety of safety-certified sea kayaks, selected to match each camper's size and experience level. Both the sailing and kayaking programs make use of the Hudson River and New York Harbor — one of the finest and cleanest natural harbors in the nation.
