Sky Tavern and Project Discovery
Overnight Summer Camp
Only A Dozen Spots Left
June 26-28
For kids 9-12 years old
Project Discovery in partnership with the Sky Tavern Junior Ski Program is honored to offer an excellent leadership based summer camp program for kids ages 9 through 12. Campers are sure to experience exciting and dynamic outdoor adventures with their team as they explore the Tahoe outdoors together!  Sign up today as space is very limited.
  • Monday & Tuesday: The first two days of this program will be spent at the Project Discovery Ropes Challenge Course at Sky Tavern. This course is one of the largest challenge courses in the country and offers fun and exciting leadership opportunities like a ride down a 550’ zip line, a double trapeze bar and many team elements up high for all to enjoy. Students will also learn how to belay in a supervised team setting and how to climb and balance on dozens of exciting elements.
  • Wednesday: Campers will spend the day at a safe, beginning rock climbing site. Campers will use the skills learned on the ropes course and will apply it to real rocks at a well-supervised and safe location. This beginning rock climbing area is a great place to practice the art of rappelling and rock climbing followed by some cooling off with some water play.
  • Thursday: The week will conclude with an exciting day on the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe where campers will construct their own boat and learn about water safety and other travel skills. This last day on the water is a time to enjoy new friendships and relive adventures the group has shared together.
Activity schedule and locations subject to change to accommodate weather and other special needs
This week will not only provide campers a great adventure in the local Tahoe area but also focus on helping students find and celebrate their own leadership strengths, both as individuals and as team members. The week ends with an appreciation circle celebrating each camper’s accomplishments and growth during the week. The goals include improving leadership skills, self-confidence, communication skills and of course, the making of new friendships.
June 26-28
At Sky Tavern!
We have been talking about this forever, summer camps at Sky Tavern so we are going to give it a go. This is a place kids need to use all year long so Step 1!
Sky Tavern staff will be handling all the food and camping arrangements and Project Discovery, the ropes course at Sky Tavern, will be keeping kids busy all day long.
Kids will be staying in tents donated by Scheels, with supervision, at night and eating up at the lodge.
Project Discovery is a truly amazing organization and have been a partner with the City of Reno and Sky Tavern for many years. What Mike and his staff do with kids is fun and learning on a whole new level. It is why some days I don't get much done since I go watch the kids on the ropes course.
This camp is part of some planned changes coming to Sky Tavern. This place needs to be a place for all the Truckee Meadows all year long. It will take some effort but the community needs this place.
