We will be working on a different theme each day which can include:
• Stalking, tracking, trapping, "mock" 3-D target hunt with blood trails tracking and camouflage
• Shelter building, survival skills, and fire by friction and fire tending
• Archery, tomahawks and knife skills and padded arrow tag
• Warrior challenges, obstacle course, games of skill, balance, endurance and stealth
• Hand crafts, leather, wood, clay, metal craft and fiber crafts

Plus nature games, stories, crafts and challenges. We'll also be making different snacks and beverages each day as part of the 
connecting camp experience; processing apples for cider, fresh squeezed lemonade, manzanita tea and solar oven bread. Unfortunately due to the lack of rain and the dry summer conditions we will not be able to have a cooking fire. Please make sure your child brings a lunch, full water bottle  and any additional snacks they may need.

“Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the muddy hands of the young; it travels along grass-stained sleeves to the heart. If we are going to save environmentalism and the environment, we must also save an endangered indicator species: the child in nature.”
