Long Business Description:

Adventure Sports Unlimited (ASU) is an aquatics center that teaches people the fun to play in water. We bring people together, teach them to the best of their abilities, outfit them with gear to fit their potential, arrange adventures to use their new skills, and eat well. It seems only appropriate that when you have a bunch of adventure enthusiasts together at an exotic aquatic environment, after a day of SCUBA diving, that a bit of seafood foraging will result in a wonderful gourmet meal to toast the day.

The essence of our plot is unrelenting fun and through this joy we will impart superior skills and safety. The ASU facility has a tropically heated training pool with hot tub, retail shop to serve your swimming and dive needs, classroom, and loaded it with water toys for people to play with. For 38 years,we have been successfully teaching the joys of being in water through the recreational sport of SCUBA for all ages and Adventure Sports Swim School.  Additionally we offer outstanding travel adventures. Find your next adventure through Adventure Sports Unlimited. Family Offerings  Seafood Foraging  &  Kelp Pickling

Adventure Sports Swim School  Learning to swim is a new and exciting experience for children.

We maintain a high quality and individual accomplishment through small group lessons. We want your potential swimmers to have confidence in the water. In the end, this means technique, safety, and bright, happy smiles for everyone.

All About Theatre Camps

We are elated to be offering so many incredible camps at both our downtown location and our mid-county locations.

In all of our Summer Camps – students will focus on learning proper voice and dance techniques while exploring the various song and dance styles used in Broadway shows, movies, and the music industry.

Our camps include a proper physical warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions, and combinations. In addition, students learn vocal warm ups and exercises that strengthen projection, instill confidence, and gain control and improve the quality of sound production. Acting skills are also honed with games, and learning performing skills that help the student connect with the audience, be expressive, tell a story, and overcome stage fright.

CAMP HAMMER FIRE UPDATE

Update 10/1/2020

We’ve heard from many of you who would like to volunteer with cleanup efforts at Camp Hammer! Thank you for your love of camp and desire to serve! At the moment we are finalizing a work plan that is focused on erosion control and containing debris from the burned structures. This will involve installing straw waddles, silt fences and sand bags. However, before we can perform the work we need to make sure it can be done safely–especially when it comes to our volunteers.

We will be providing updates and additional details once we have finalized the work plan. To receive these updates directly please email mark@tlc.org.

Thanks again and God Bless!
