BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: VISIONS programs are grounded in a philosophy that has been changing the lives of teenagers for 30 years. We believe it is best to do one thing and do it well. That’s why across all programs we have one model, built on the pillars of meaningful service, full cultural immersion and open-minded exploration. This is not a teen tour. This is a time to step outside of yourself, to do more and be more.

Our student volunteers work among Blackfeet and Northern Cheyenne people on Montana Indian reservations and with indigenous Athabascans in Alaska, as well as abroad in South and Central America, the Caribbean and Cambodia.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Wilderness/Nature, Waterfront/Aquatics, Adventure, Horses/Equestrian, Travel, Fine Arts/Crafts, Soccer, Academics, and more. Community Service, Language Immersion.

TOP MONTANA WILDERNESS CAMP: VISIONS Service Adventures is a Top Wilderness Summer Camp located in  Montana offering many fun and enriching Wilderness and other camp programs.

CAMP LOCATION: We have locations around the world including: Alaska, Montana, Dominican Republic, British Virgin Islands, Ecuador, Peru, and Guadeloupe.

CAMP FACILITIES: For all of our program we stay in the heart of the community. Depending on location, we stay in schools, community centers, and rented homes.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: For thirty years, VISIONS has set the standard for domestic and international community service programs for high school and middle school students. We strongly believe that collaborative service work and cross-cultural living help our teen volunteers understand a complicated world and learn meaningful ways to contribute productively.

VISIONS collaborates with local nonprofits and makes long-term commitments in our communities. We have worked in most locations for more than 15 years, and in some places for more than 20 years. You typically get to choose from three different worksites during the week, and work until mid-afternoon. Our community service projects are a way we thank the local friends who welcome us into their lives.

Cultural learning and friendship are core to VISIONS. You experience the culture in a way that is unique from being a tourist. You share common goals and work with local people to achieve those goals. You may be surprised by what you have in common with people whose lives are so different from your own.

All of our summer leaders are CPR and First Aid certification and undergo extensive training at the Montana homebase before departing to the program location. All leaders have reference and background checks, extensive training, and first aid certifications at minimum. Leaders include teachers, outdoor educators, Masters and Ph.D. students, returned Peace Corps volunteers, carpenters, and other professionals.
