Description of Regular Meetings/Activities

Iowa State Camp Adventure regularly meets every Wednesday evening during the Spring semester from 6PM-10PM. During this time we gain knowledge and resources about tools we can use out in the field as well as trainings required by the United States Military. We learn new games, songs, skits, crafts, and themes. It is also a great time to share ideas with other trainees that they can use on their own programs. Trainings are a time when we truly learn the Camp Adventure way!
