Join us for one or two days of fun during February school vacation! Our February Vacation Days operate like our summer camp days. We will spend our mornings with a focused activity in the woods and the afternoon playing games, working on wilderness skills, or sliding like otters down snowy hillsides. Each day will end with a campfire (and maybe a tasty treat…). Daily themes are listed below:
2/20 – Winter Survival
Do you have what it takes to survive the winter? Today we will learn how to safely build and tend to a fire, build shelters, and discover what wild edibles are available to us in the winter. After collecting pine needles and tapping a maple tree, we will make tea and maple syrup!
2/21 – Animal Investigations
We don’t always see animals, but they are always there. Winter is the best time to track and find evidence animals have left behind! Students will learn about different animal signs and then go into the woods to investigate what animals have been traversing the woods of Camp Denison.

Due to space restrictions, our group will be capped at 10 students. Program participants will bring their own snacks and lunches along with appropriate outdoor gear. A full list of what to bring will be sent to those who register.
