Week 1: Biking the Back Woods I – June 28 – July 2 – FULL

For the adventurous teen who enjoys the challenge of off-road biking and wilderness skills. We will spend our days riding through Georgetown-Rowley and Willowdale State Forests, pushing our edges, honing our wilderness skills, while also learning about local ecology. Stops will be made for snacks, swimming, and exploration. 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: Wild Woodcrafting – July 5 – 9

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 3: Biking the Back Woods II – July 12 – 16 – FULL

For the adventurous teen who enjoys the challenge of off-road biking and wilderness skills. We will spend our days riding through Georgetown-Rowley and Willowdale State Forests, pushing our edges, honing our wilderness skills, while also learning about local ecology. Stops will be made for snacks, swimming, and exploration. 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 4: Into the Wild – August 2-6

Are you ready for the ultimate survival challenge? Spend a week with your fellow campers creating a base camp 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 base camp, you’ll be participating in team-building activities, games, and honing your naturalist skills.

Cancellation policy: If a week or weeks of camp need to be cancelled due to COVID-19, all camp families will receive a full refund.

All payments are fully refundable prior to June 1. After June 1, you are entitled to a refund (less deposit) only if we can fill your camper’s spot off our wait list.
