Join us for a second session of thriving and surviving at Forest Camp for 3 weeks. Become the eyes and ears of the forest as you learn confidence through the skills of the scout. Discover how to blend into the landscape through the arts of camouflage, navigation without compass or map, and stealthy movement. Together with your fellow adventurers you will build fire from friction, make and use natural tools, identify and harvest edible plants, cook over open fires, sleep in a rain-proof shelter you build yourself, and more! In addition, Forest Campers will potentially swim, play capture the flag, pick wild raspberries & blackberries, play music, tend the camp garden, build wilderness shelters, or climb the rock wall during free time. Forest camp inspires youths natural discovery, cooperation, responsibility, and independence. Forest Overnight campers have a choose to join us on a multi day Canoe Expedition down the Connecticut River where they will learn countless skills while playing tons of games on the water. Campers spend their week sleeping in our Adirondack shelters and/or the forest surrounding our main campus with up to eight other campers in their own hammocks. Our girls and boys sleeping shelters are located on opposite ends of camp. The week for traditional overnight campers begins with drop-off on Sunday, and lasts through pick-up on the appropriate Saturday.
