For over 25 years, Calleva has built a reputation for excellence and innovation in outdoor education and outdoor adventure programming. Their mission is to get people of all ages outdoors, providing an educational and challenging environment that promotes personal growth, group cooperation and leadership skill through outdoor activities.

Over the years, Calleva has developed its own unique brand of outdoor adventure that encompasses summer camp, environmental education and small scale sustainable farming.
