Here's what my daughter says; "I thought the experience was amazing. I loved learning about hiding and animals and intuition, and I definitely want to come back next summer. It made me so happy that the feeling has stuck with me. I learned some lessons about life that I will use my whole life."
Amy, mother of 13 year old camper
Such an amazing camp, filled with incredible, thoughtful people, and organized around such creative, fun, clever games and skill learning. Your camp is a truly special experience!
We were very impressed with the camp instructors. Our son's experience was very positive and we attribute that to the patience and sincere attention that the instructors gave to the campers. We couldn't more happy with what our son walked away from camp with. He had fun, pushed his abilities, made friends, gained confidence and became more aware of his natural surroundings.

Discover the ancient ways of the scout! Develop the keen awareness and observation tools demonstrated by the ancient scouts of many cultures. Learn how scouts used their awareness of their surroundings to keep their people safe and healthy. Practice the arts of moving invisibly, dressing in camouflage, understanding bird language (the alarm system of the forest), tracking wildlife and human movement, and identifying wild, edible plants. During this week, scouts will work together with other scouts to push themselves to learn and improve their skills. Those who enter the world of the Scout will likely never see nature the same way again!
