For some people, Adventure is the only way we ever really find ourselves or discover what we are truly capable of. Adventures allow us set the bar a little higher.

Barrett had an excellent time this week at day camp with One World Adventure. The activities included swimming, kayaking, fire building, compass reading, nature crafts, and plant and wildlife education among other things! We highly recommend it and look forward to going back in July!

Another great week at One World Adventure Camp! Both boys... have learned things this week and made memories that they will carry with them forever.

If you and your family want to get out and explore the great outdoors, but aren’t quite ready to go it alone, might I suggest taking a trip with One World Adventure Company! This non-profit organization is co-founded by one of our own hometown Sand Rock girls, Angie Shugart, and her husband. They also have a wonderful summer camp for kids on top of Lookout Mtn!
