Founded in 2005 in San Diego, Positive Adventures is California’s premier experiential education company. We offer both single day and overnight outdoor education programs to many of the top Independent and Charter Schools around the state. We serve more than 3,000 students each year with our programs.
Our one-week day camps are great for introducing youngsters to activities like climbing, kayaking, snorkeling and surfing in a welcoming non-threatening fashion. And you can't beat the amazing year-round weather in San Diego!
Our excellent 1:5 staff to camper ratio allows each child to get sufficient support and attention from our staff. At least one staff member at every camp is certified in at least one of these areas: First Aid/CPR/Lifeguard/Wilderness First Responder.
We hire, train and retain mature and experienced outdoor educators who work with us year-round. The advantage here is that these talented people are more than "seasonal" employees. These are outstanding men and women who are completely invested in our culture and love to share their passion for the outdoors with our campers. They personify the mantra of...it will be both SAFE and FUN!
George Stein has camp in his DNA as his grandparents founded a private residential camp in 1946. After spending many years on the east coast operating Camp Echo Lake (NY), he headed west with his family and started a private day camp from scratch in Denver, CO. In an effort to "give back", George also created free camps for inner city youngsters in Denver, CO (Project Denver) and Newark, NJ (Heart & Soul). Having recently landed in San Diego, George is very excited to be with us at Positive Adventures! He's a graduate of Tufts University in Boston where he competed in three sports. He has 21 year old twin sons who he adores beyond description.
