Pack a picnic lunch, because we are going backpacking! This camp will include a several mile hike, with stops along the way to learn about helpful and harmful plants, basic first aid, and how to track an animal. Participants must be able to carry a backpack on a hike for about 2 hours, and go that long without needing a bathroom (or use the woods for a bathroom). If you like our survival camps, this will be right up your alley!
For campers (age 8-14). Bring a well-marked sack lunch, water bottle, insect repellent, and sunscreen. Dress for the outside elements including closed-toed shoes, hat, and rain gear.
Advance registration required. $25 per camp.
WEATHER CANCELLATION POLICY: Most of our kids camps are designed around program elements that can be taught indoors or out. During periods of high heat or pop-up thunderstorms, kids will come indoors, out of the weather, for periods of time until it is safe to return outdoors. However, a forecast of severe weather will result in camp cancellations. The decision to cancel a camp based on a severe weather forecast will be made by 3:00pm the preceding day, and parents will be notified by phone.
