Advanced Survival Camp

This is an advanced course that teaches wilderness survival skills through hands-on projects and challenges that put students’ skills to the test. Skills taught may include: making fire from sticks, pottery, basket making, stone tool construction, making bark and wooden bowls, arrow crafting, making advanced shelters, gathering wild plants, and even going on a bullfrog hunt (participation optional). On Thursday evening, we have an overnight experience for the campers. They will get a chance to sleep out in a survival shelter they built and test out a variety of skills they have practiced over the course of the week.  Those skills could include things like eating dinner out of a wooden bowl they made, making the camp fire by rubbing sticks together, or eating a feast of wild food they gathered.

Skills your child will learn:

  • Sense of achievement and competence
  • Patience and focus
  • Teamwork and leadership
  • Impact of actions and decision making
  • Resilience and perseverance
  • Handling real successes and failures
  • Resourcefulness and being able to adapt to the situation
