Our state-licensed day camp is a unique combination of traditional camp activities such as arts & crafts, games, songs & skits, sports & swimming, weekly field trips, and enrichment activities. We take full advantage of various Loveland facilities!

ABDC is designed for children who have completed Kindergarten, and are entering grades 1-6 in the fall season following camp. This camp may not be appropriate for children who have already completed their 6th grade year or above. If your child falls outside of these age guidelines but is still interested in a fun, unique camp experience, please visit our Middle School & Teen Summer Programs page HERE

Adventure Bound Day Camp is licensed for 56 children per day. Campers will be divided into 2 or 3 age-appropriate groups by staff, depending on the camp activity. Licensing regulations require a 15:1 camper to leader ratio, however, we typically maintain a camper to leader ratio of 12:1 in the camp room and 10:1 on field trips.
