Let your child's imagination run wild this summer! With face markings in place and a secret survival language under development, camp groups will build a natural fort, learn basic trail safety and learn to work together to survive. This full week of Survival Camp will have juniors connecting with nature as they explore how animals and plants live in our sub-alpine environment. 

Campers will practice archery with our junior bow and arrows, learn basic map reading and understand what to do if they get lost in the wilderness. Each day's theme will be connected to one of our five senses, all crucial to survival. Run-around survival games, stories and team challenges will be part of each day's schedule.
