Week 1: Adventure Awaits! – June 27 – July 1

For the adventurous teen who enjoys the challenge of off-road biking and wilderness skills. During this action-packed week, campers will spend three days riding through Georgetown-Rowley State Forest, one day canoeing on Baldpate Pond, and one day exploring the woods in Baldpate State Forest while honing their wilderness and survival skills. This week is open to bikers of all abilities but campers do need to provide their own bike (and transportation for the bike to and from camp).

Week 2: Into the Woods – July 5 – 8

Reduced fee ($300) due to a 4 day week

Are you ready for the ultimate survival challenge? Spend a week with your fellow campers creating a basecamp deep in the woods of Camp Denison. You will be responsible for building your own shelters, creating tools, purifying water, and hunting or scrounging for wild edibles. When you’re not working at your basecamp, you’ll be participating in team-building activities, games, and honing your naturalist skills.

Week 3: Advanced Wild Wood Crafting – July 11 – 15

The natural world provides us with a wealth of building materials such as wood, vines, leaves, and even pine sap. During this week at camp, we will roam the forests of Camp Denison, collecting these materials, and putting them to good use. Using tools such as axes, knives, and twine, we will construct forts, bows and arrows, fish traps, rafts, and more! Note: proper instruction and safety training will occur prior to the use of any tools.

Week 4: July 18 – 22 – Tracking and Trailing 

In order to be a great tracker, you must be patient, perceptive, and deceptive; are you up for the challenge? Spend a week learning how to find game trails, identify tracks and animal sign, as well as how to sneak up on unsuspecting prey. We will hone our stalking skills and learn how to camouflage our bodies and our scents. By the end of the week, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a skilled tracker!

Week 5: July 25 – 29 – Adventure Awaits II!
