Your child will have an incredible week of skill-learning! Campers learn knife safety while carving a wooden spoon or walking stick. They’ll have fun learning the craft of knot-tying and use what they’ve learned to construct a shelter. Challenges will be navigated during fun missions – with and without the help of a compass.

Recognized by ParentMap as the best nature camp!

Campers will enjoy:

  • Carving a wooden spoon or walking stick
  • Creating useful tools using knots
  • Building shelters with ropes, tarps, and natural materials
  • Navigating missions with and without a compass
  • Experimenting with trap-building
  • Enjoying wild adventures outdoors!
