Our mission: To build resilient and adaptable humans by offering challenging, exciting, and fun experiences that build character and toughness.
What better playground than the natural world?
Join us for old-school adventure. We offer camps for people of all ages, where no matter your experience level, you can push your envelope knowing that someone with good judgement and ample outdoor experience is close at hand. We encourage children ages 7-13 to play and experience the world in ways that have disappeared from our society.
Parents have the reassurance that their children are adventuring under the supervision of an adult who is experienced and comfortable in nature, who understands and values supervision and safety, but who will encourage exploration. The adult to child ratio is 1:5. Your child will return home having gotten dirty, muddy, wet, and exhausted.
June 21-23 (Fri-Sun)
