Have you been to Explorers Camp (or another similar experience), but aren’t quite sure you are ready for two weeks of EARTH Camp? Then this is for you! This is an intermediate step for those “bridging” the gap. We will increase our learning experiences, building upon the basics that were introduced to in Explorers Camp. These subjects will include intermediate fire and knife use, wilderness survival, wildcrafting, nature awareness, and much more! We will incorporate an overnight adventure to introduce some trail-craft and backcountry basics.

Explorers Camp

During Explorers Camp, we build a foundation for a life of self-awareness, nature appreciation and outdoor adventure. We focus on building community and the wonderful aspects of friendships and fun! A solid skill set is introduced around the basic earth skills: Fire, Fiber and Flint (the use of sharp edges). We also dive into “earthy” arts and crafts, traditional archery, woodworking and lots more!
