The Road Less Traveled shares very similar values and philosophy to traditional overnight camps. Like most camps, our mission is to provide transformative growth opportunities for children using outdoor adventure experiences as a vehicle to do so. We understand starting, developing, or even managing a trip program can be logistically challenging and time-consuming. Outsourcing your tripping needs to RLT will free up your time while increasing your value proposition to families, and most importantly providing an exceptional standard of trip experiences for your campers and staff.

Learning to scuba dive at a young age opens up a world of new adventures. Our scuba programs include beginner courses to learn how to dive safely as well as more advanced specialty courses in navigation, species identification, and other advanced skills. All scuba courses are run through PADI or SSI and lifetime certifications are awarded upon successful completion of the course. If your child is interested in marine science, wants a new adventure, or even just loves the water, our carefully designed programs will allow them to develop new scuba skills while exploring some of the best diving locations in the world!
