Teamwork. Endurance. Spirit.
The Teen Adventure Challenge ® is a youth race that brings communities across Southern California together to inspire young people to step out of their comfort zones and explore new opportunities in the outdoors.
High school teams are made up of three students, and middle school teams have three students racers plus one adult mentor. Together, they make their way through each portion of the race: kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and a series of team building challenges. Ultimately, we aim to promote in our youth active and healthy lifestyle choices and an appreciation for nature and local parks. Volunteer opportunities and a student arts showcase are also available for attendees to enjoy.
The Teen Adventure Challenge is a rewarding, healthy experience for teens and their adult team captain. Teams race through a strategically designed wilderness course which includes a series of adventure-based activities and team building challenges and gives students an opportunity to practice leadership and life skills in a safe and fun environment.
