Welcome to Tumbleweed Adventure, Tumbleweed's off-site, field trip based program. At Tumbleweed Adventure, campers entering 3rd through 8th grade spend each day traveling to beautiful beaches and local area attractions.
Typical Tumbleweed Adventure Schedule:
Once Adventure campers arrive at camp, campers and staff join their group and prepare for their day’s adventure. Mondays beach days, Thursdays are generally a theme park day, and the rest of the week consists of trips to nearby area attractions. Unless noted, TW Adventure campers will arrive back to camp in time for transportation home.
