Our Progressive Camping Philosophy
Yes, there is camping at our camp! Our camping program is progressive in the skills we teach and the trips on which we embark. Our very youngest campers learn basic camping skills and go on an ‘Almost Overnight’ on our campus. As skills increase and children get older campers work their way up to week-long adventures in our oldest groups.
We believe camping builds confidence and resilience, cultivates group bonding, opens up new vistas and horizons (literally and figuratively), brings children closer to nature, and, in an un-plugged environment, gives them experiences they’ll never forget.
Our camping staff is certified, experienced, gentle and encouraging, following the ‘roughing it easy’ philosophy. We do not approach the outdoors with the idea that we are going out to ‘conquer’ something, but rather that we are going out to open up to something even greater than ourselves.
