Outdoor Survival II

Instructor: Karen Foster

#311       June 29-July 2 (No camp on July 3rd)


The most important tool in survival is your brain and this camp is designed to put it to the test. Can you solve problems using only the clothes on your back? Could you catch a fish if given only a hook and a small piece of fishing line? Do you know how to start a fire without matches? Both seasoned veterans and first-time Outdoor 
Survival campers will find this camp fun and challenging.

Outdoor Adventure II

Instructor: Heidi Malizia

#413       July 27-31


Looking for an adrenaline rush this summer? Look no further! This year, we’ll step it up a notch with outdoor rock climbing at Ralph Stover State Park, kayaking at Nockamixon State Park, exploring exciting treetop obstacles and thrilling zip-lines at Treetop Quest, stream-stomping, hiking, and taking aim with archery!

Wildlife Biologist

Instructor: Katie Fisk

#506       August 10-14


Experience first-hand what it’s like to be a wildlife biologist! Each day, experience a different aspect of this profession: examine skulls in mammalogy, master bird watching in ornithology, and learn how to measure the height of trees for dendrology without ever leaving the ground. Sharpen your observation skills and experience the life of a wildlife biologist!

Jedi Camp

Instructor: Ehren Gross

#513        August 24-28


What if you could control the force? The force of nature, that is! Become a Nature Jedi and learn the ways of the forces of nature. Each day, examine one of Nature’s forces: Water, Sun, Earth, Wind, and Fire and learn about the importance and power of each force. May the force be with you!
