Call Of The Wild Camp

Ages 8-14 // Trail Blazers

Learn bushcraft and survival skills to thrive in front or backcountry. Campers will be taught to make fire with and without matches, and how to tend to fire safety. Learn knife safety, maintenance, essential knots, shelter-building, how to use a camp stove and campfire cooking. Campers will hike every day on-site throughout our 240-acre site before heading to the mountains at the end of the week. The week will end with a fire-side reflection and group storytelling. Please note the lunch program is not an available add-on for this camp because we are out enjoying the wilderness and need the flexibility to stop for lunch when we are on-the-go.
