Can you see yourself spending your nights under the stars with your closest friends and mentors, in a shelter you made yourself? Can you imagine making fire by friction or feeding yourself and your friends just from what wild land can give you?
Welcome to Teen Camp! We have completely redesigned this camp to offer both a more accessible social experience and a more immersive nature experience. Camp is now open to all teens regardless of experience level, and we’re not just staying at base camp anymore! We have thousands of wild acres to roam and explore.
Our group starts at base camp on the huckleberry-lined banks of Trumbull Creek. At base camp we’ll coach participants in survival priorities such as group bonding, awareness, building shelter, making fire, and finding water and food. We’ll also explore and establish a primitive camp away from base camp. Later in the week we’ll ease into full wilderness mode, with survival challenges, amazing night-time scout games, storytelling by the fire, and more. Then we will return to base camp with magical stories of personal growth and group connection. Finally we’ll have a chance to share our most meaningful stories with friends and family in a celebratory closing ceremony.
Guided by skilled mentors and wild land, participants will acquire survival, awareness, and leadership skills. And participants will form bonds and experience connectedness that is unparalleled in our modern life. Come celebrate wild nature, and bring your friends!
