BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Crystalaire Adventures is an adventure travel and education program in northern Michigan. We believe in offering playful, inclusive outdoor experiences in wild places that offer meaningful experiences. We are part of a larger coalition of programs that focus on designing fun and engaging social networks that let participants define and dictate the experience that they have. Rather than filling our trips with adult-developed programming, our participants get to help co-lead and create the experience on every trip.

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: Please learn more about our ability to accommodate special needs on trips at: Our Camp Website Link: www.crystalaireadventures.com

CAMP LOCATION: We operate out of Camp Lookout, alongside the Lake Michigan shoreline in Frankfort south of the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Our trips take place around the country and region, into the Upper Peninsula, and even into Canada.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our philosophy is based around designing inclusive social groups that allow for participants to express themselves and have a say in the experience. Participants will set the schedule, control the route, and are given the freedom to develop their own games and activities while on our programs.

Participants will sleep in tents (excepting sailing programs, where accommodations are typically on the boats themselves). Participants will typically travel daily, learning to prepare their own meals on fires and camp stoves, setting up their own schedules, learning outdoor skills (survival skills, map and compass, etc...), and learning about group dynamics.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Crystalaire has been offering alternative outdoor adventure education experiences for almost a century. Our staff are highly trained, and will have lifeguarding and wilderness medicine certifications as well as prior experience. We believe in creating playful and inclusive trips in wild places that offer meaningful experiences for all participants. We consider each trip to be a "microsociety," and give our participants the chance to weigh in and decide how they want that "microsociety" to function, how they want people to be treated, and how they want group decisions to be made.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: 16 and 17 year old campers are welcome to join us on our Cojourn, a 3-week outdoor leadership intensive that focuses on our group management and social dynamics curriculum. More information can be found online.

18 - 21 year old applicants can join our Apprenticeship program for a 4-6 week intensive training in outdoor leadership. This is a paid internship.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We provide scholarships based on your own assessment of your need. Let us know what help you need, we'll believe you and will do what we can to meet it.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Family Camps can be created using the Choose Your Own Adventure option.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: We plan trips year round, and are willing to work with you to plan a trip during a spring break, fall break, weekend, or other time of year. We also offer after school programs, can contribute to classroom curriculum or field trips, or can offer training and certifications throughout the year.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
Trips vary widely, ranging from 2-days to 3-weeks. For a complete set of programs, go to Our Camp Website Link: www.crystalaireadventures.com
