Forts & Shelters Camp

Forts and shelters capture kids’ imaginations. It allows them to use their minds to design structures, and their hands and bodies to create them. We’ll design and build forts and shelters using the raw materials that nature provides and our historical knowledge of primitive shelters in this area. Sign your wilderness architect up today! 

Forts & Shelters is a specialized camp with a focused theme, and while there is no prerequisite for experience, we recommend that campers are enthusiastic about the subject because they will be immersed in it each day.

Your child will:

  • Learn about primitive shelter design in our region
  • Explore with wonder and curiosity
  • Develop resilience and adaptability
  • Feel a sense of accomplishment through doing
  • Cultivate empathy and connection to people and nature
  • Gain the courage to try new things and challenges
  • Cultivate patience and serenity
  • Engage the body to be active and alive
  • Deepen feelings of gratitude
