Who We Are
Life Adventure Center of the Bluegrass emerged after a historical encounter between The Cleveland Home and Life Adventure Camp. The Cleveland Home operated as an orphanage in the late 1800's in Versailles. It later served as a residential facility for 17 females. Established in 1975, Life Adventure Camp instilled self-esteem and confidence in Kentucky at-risk youth through wilderness experiences. Life Adventure Camp and the Cleveland Home merged in 2000. In 2005, we moved to our current location. In 2006, our name changed to Life Adventure Center of the Bluegrass. With our current location, we are able to serve a much larger and diverse audience.
