When I asked my children what they like about Northwoods Adventure, they replied, "we don't like NWA...WE LOVE IT!! My three kids love NWA in different ways. My son who has been there for four years enjoys all the sporting activities and competitions like basketball games, running relays, frisbee golfing, canoeing and just being outside enjoying the summer. He has made friends that he looks forward to seeing again the next year. When asked at school where his favorite place was, he wrote that it was a place called tent city (at camp). The campers get to set up a camp across the lake, not too far from the base camp, that they canoe to. The kids make it a home away from home.
My daughter loves the nature that is surrounding her. She catches frogs and toads, and loves to cast out her fishing pole in hopes of providing dinner for the campers. The friends and international relationships are what my daughter has really enjoyed about NWA. The friends that she has made over the past couple of years is much of the reason that brings her back every year. The counselors that are at NWA are like family to her :o). My youngest son loves hanging out with all the kids and can be found right in the middle of it all or alone finding solace in the nature surrounding him. The activities that can be experienced with new friends are endless.
The counselors at NWA bring amazing diversity to the program. They work together seamlessly from one event to the next, yet bring many different viewpoints that combine to form a symphony.
We will be coming back for many years to come. The fun is never-ending and the life experiences are second to none!
