Build shelters, cook over campfires made without matches, make rope from plants, orient yourself with just nature as your guide!

Description

These are the skills you need to know now to survive in the wilderness! Learn to recognize the best plants to use when building proper shelters and fires, then build them! Secure your shelter with knots using natural fibers, and cook over an open fire like a pro. Orient yourself with just nature as your guide. This is an all day camp from 9 am - 3 pm. Students must provide their own ´╗┐lunches. This camp is open to campers entering grade 5 through grade 8 in the fall.

Permission/Emergency Forms and standard gear list available at this link: Download Parent Packet. Instructor may contact you with additional gear.  Bring completed forms with you the first day of camp.

Space is firmly limited. We also provide this camp at Succop Nature Park and Buffalo Creek Nature Park at other weeks this summer. Same great camp, different location!
