We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, August 13, 2021.
No prerequisites needed. This camp goes in depth into critical survival skills using fun, challenging scenarios. Participants work on their own and in teams to problem solve various skills challenges such as shelter, fire, tool use, knife safety, traps, rope and knots, plant uses, animal tracking, primitive skills, navigation and more (we can’t cover all of it in one week!) Instructors help participants build initiative, self-control, confidence and communication skills while making new friends. We play survival themed games and the week ends with an exciting final scenario and a certificate of achievement. Bring appropriate clothing, snacks and lunch.
