Summer Camp

What Makes a Summer Camp Extraordinary?

Summer Camp 2020 Registration is Open!

Two Coyotes Wilderness School offers up to 9 weeklong day camp sessions at our Newtown & Granby locations. Each session is led by skilled nature mentors who will introduce your child to primitive and naturalist skills by tailoring each camp day to match the natural curiosity of their campers. Campers learn everything from how to craft handmade tools and art projects from natural materials, track animals, identify bird language, make friction fires, build forts and shelters, and forage for safe wild edibles. Our advanced sessions feature an overnight campout for kids age 9-15. Along the way, all campers learn nature-inspired games, songs, and have free time to explore streams, mountainsides, and other unexpected nature mysteries encountered throughout the day.

Above all, our nature summer camps get kids outside and having fun! Our mentors use the natural world to teach campers valuable life skills. We believe that nature is the perfect place for children to learn about their personal gifts and how to overcome life’s challenges. Our small group size and exceptional adult mentors ensure a high quality experience filled with memories and new friendships. Read parent & camper testimonials here.

A Typical Day at Camp

Camp starts with a morning game and gratitude circle. Mornings are spent focusing on wilderness projects and learning skills such as building a primitive shelter, making pottery, or learning how to sneak invisibly through the forest. After lunch, our afternoons are filled with storytelling, playing in the river, and games that apply the skills we learned in the morning. We close each day with a sharing circle and group song.
