About Calleva

Calleva is a non-profit outdoor education company based in the Washington D.C. area, with a campus in Poolesville, Maryland and McLean, Virginia. For 29 years, Calleva's goal has been to build competence and confidence in the outdoors, exposing participants to the wonderful world of outdoor adventure!

During the summer, you can find our campers and staff out on the river kayaking, rafting, stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing and sailing. They're also rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, spending time on our two challenge courses, and so much more! Our summer day camps are a staple for adventurous youth, looking to grow as leaders and outdoor enthusiasts. From our youngest campers who start at 5, to our oldest teen leadership campers, Calleva provides an experience fit for any age range.

During the school year you can find us working with private and public schools running day trips, as well as week-long outdoor adventure experiences.

Calleva is looking for staff who are interested in working with youth, and in the outdoors! Calleva provides free training both before and during the summer, and one of our biggest goals as an organization is to have well-trained, well-prepared staff. Our goal is to combine the best adventures with the best staff to help create the best summer memories for our campers!
