Frequently Asked Question about Camp Adventure
Do I get to choose where I will be going?
Participants will be able to rank specific destinations to which they would like to travel. Usually, students are placed within their top five choices.
Do I need to be able to speak another language to participate?
There are no language requirements. We work mostly on U.S. military bases so all the children speak English. We also work in U.S. Embassies running camps that focus on English as a second language.

Participants will be required to attend mandatory trainings on UT's campus.
