Group Programs

Get ready to learn and grow! Camp Akita's group programs create opportunities for learning about nature, leadership, team development, and personal and professional growth. We design our programs to help participants develop skills and understanding through experiential education in outdoor settings. Let us challenge your group to step beyond your personal boundaries and self-imposed limitations and broaden your understanding of yourselves and the natural world.
