This camp is designed for the teen who wants to take it up another notch with their camp experience and really challenge their outdoor skills! We will challenge campers to execute real life situations as if they were stranded in the backcountry! From ages 12-15, kids will have a blast learning basic survival skills such as but not limited to; building a fire, basic first aid, what to take with you in the wilderness, harvesting fresh water, fishing with simple tools, building a shelter, tracking, navigation, survival food, knot tying, edible plants and insects, and much more! Campers will also get to experience several team building activities to break up each day and have some fun playing kickball or canoeing, or completing a low ropes course! (Please understand this camp is all about having fun learning new things. This camp in no way certifies campers in anyway to be “expert outdoorsmen/women” but is simply to just further their knowledge of the woods!)


Survival Camp will be held July 23-25, 2024 from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. each day, (drop off is 8:45 A.M. – 9:00 A.M., pick up is 4:00 P.M.)

Campers are to be dropped off at the “EDUCATION CENTER” entrance on the righthand side of the new building. Please feel free to use the pick-up/drop-off turn-around area. During pick-up, our staff will be outside to help form a line within the turn-around area where we will need to see an ID of the person picking up your child and they must match one of the names provided during registration in the “Parent Pickup” section.

Survival Camp is for kids ages 12-15, NO EXCEPTIONS. Yes, that includes younger/older siblings or ANYONE under 12 or over 15. Even if their birthday is coming up or just happened.

$75.00 per camper for the 3 days.

Survival Camp maxs out at 20 spots, so don’t wait and register today!
