Explore the basics of canoe safety, fire building, fishing and trail blazing. We'll make tie-dye shirts, a gourd birdhouse and "earth frames," – and have a visit from SCIENCE ALIVE (an animal program).
Living the Outdoors (Grades 6-plus)
Join us for a camp experience with Jim Miller, nationally renowned outdoorsman and author, as he shares his expertise in outdoor skills, primitive arts and Native American folklore. Each camper will make his or her own knife sheath using birch bark and tree root, weave fibers from plants and much more.
Log Cabin Living (Grades 2-plus)
Live the life of a pioneer family doing their seasonal activities: quilting, gathering, basket weaving, fishing, spool weaving, candle making, recognizing edible plants, bread making and much more.
Exploring the Great Outdoors (Ages 3-4)
Become friends with the outdoors! You'll visit nature center animals, get an up-close look at the wonderful world of bugs and meet "Mrs. Oak," our talking tree. You'll visit the log cabin and see how the pioneers lived, design your own t-shirt and tote – and create an "earth frame."
Exploring the Great Outdoors – Next Step (Ages 5-7)
Have fun outdoors! View nature up close, learn survival skills as we build a shelter and make a campfire, blaze a trail by making your own trail markers and learn to use a trail map, build and launch your own mini-raft and much more.
