Great Outdoors Summer Camp: Avid4 Adventure

This is a sponsored post by Avid4 Adventure.
Although this is a sponsored post, all my opinions are my own. 

Childhood summers are best spent in "The Great Outdoors" and living in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area I know there are so many activities to choose from to have a great time.  Avid4 Adventure, "Made in Colorado. Exported to California" is an outdoor recreation company  for children ages 3 to 17 that works to instill the love of adventure and the outdoors in the young generation.

With an active family that likes to spend time outdoors, I'm always looking for new and different ways to engage my children and encourage a healthy active lifestyle.  Summer is a great time where we've tried new outdoor activities and this year it was a goal of mine to go kayaking as a family.

In addition to our normal summer activities of family camping, hiking, backpacking, and biking this year my son will be participating in an Avid4 Adventure day camp in the Bay Area. So keep your eyes open for my review later this Summer!  Let's just say my son is beyond excited partake in this outdoor camp! 

San Francisco Bay Area Day Camps

Avid4 Adventure has four Bay Area day camp locations which include multi-sport and single-sport camps.  Children from Pre-K to 8th grade meet up at a central location and are transported to local parks where they participate in a different activity every day.  From hiking, kayaking, SUPing, rock climbing, mountain biking, and more, Avid4 Adventure has a seasoned team of outdoor instruction experts at these Bay Area locations:

North Bay - Mill Valley

East Bay - Oakland

Peninsula - Palo Alto

South Bay - Saratoga

Adventure Camp Staff Qualifications: As a mom who is always around her children, I am very particular with who I entrust my children to.  I can feel confident not only in the camp staff's ability to teach my child a new skill, but also in keeping my child safe.
