Week 1: Into the Wild – June 28 – July 2

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.

Week 2: Wild Woodcrafting – July 12 – 16

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 – July 26 – 30

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 II – August 9-13
