In the Earth Skills Camp you will learn the ancient skills that our ancestors used to thrive in nature on a daily basis. Each camper will develop the focus and confidence that these skills unleash!
This camp features advanced skills like primitive pottery, archery, stone tools, hide-tanning and overnight mock survival experiences. We will wander to our favorite fishing spots and cool off while exploring our secluded mountains streams and waterfalls.
The Wilderness Experience Camp is the foundation to our overnight camps. While attending this week-long overnight camp, everyone will build their own friction fire kit and survival shelter. Campers will also learn; ancient navigational skills, how to cook over a campfire, and how to make their own utensils, . We will wander to our favorite fishing spots and cool off while exploring the secluded mountains streams and waterfalls. Oh and for those who like a challenge, the SCOUT LOG!
The Archery Adventure Camp - Spend a week camping and building your own bow and arrows from natural materials, learn proper archery form and shooting techniques, and how to move silently through the forest becoming invisible! This camp is full of games, waterfalls, and fishing too!
An Archer must have a keen sense of awareness, focus and the ability to remain calm under pressure. We will play game and meet challenges that will hone your shooting skills.
These experiences will expand your child's comfort and confidence levels, build self esteem, confidence, problem solving skills, and will create an appreciation for life and nature as we camp in the Shenandoah Mountains on a 1400-acre private wilderness sanctuary near Harpers Ferry, WV.
Students will come home empowered with an unprecedented wealth of ancient knowledge, hands-on experience and hand-crafted items.
If your child isn't comfortable overnight camping, we recommend they attend our Youth Day Camps first.
