Day Camp

Outdoor Skills

Camper learning how to build a fire

During the regular camp day groups will be scheduled for hands-on activity periods with members of our camping department. Campers learn various outdoor skills that help them during overnights and beyond: how to put up a tent, choosing a camp site, fire building and safety, cooking outdoors, taking care of themselves (drinking enough water, avoiding sunburn, eating well, keeping dry in wet weather, etc.). Practicing minimal impact camping skills and learning how to live lightly on the earth are the essence of this program.
