Team Work Week: JULY 23rd-JULY 27th

This is a week of adventure that teaches us the true meaning of community.  Campers discover how martial arts and nature are all about teamwork!  We’re learning basic nature awareness, navigation and safety skills and even building shelters together!  Join us to solve problems as a team and celebrate diversity in our own group and in the wild.

Inner Spark: JULY 30th – AUGUST 3rd

This week begins with inspiration from the sun!  Explore how energy moves through each part of our world and discover that brave spark that lives inside of you too.  Kids will also learn age-appropriate fire safety, the components needed to build a successful campfire, and how to put it out properly.  Next, we explore the power of water – it can put out fires, erode earth and is essential for life!  Inspired by these two elements, each kid will design their own superhero and share it at the final presentation!

Flying Lessons: AUGUST 6th – AUGUST 10th

Jump on the wind and get a new perspective.  Kids this week are going on an adventure through the Earth and all the way to outer space.  We’re going to discover what’s inside our planet, what surrounds it, and what lies beyond our atmosphere.  We’ll also learn why the Ninja were rumored to have magic flying powers, and get to know about the birds of our own region.  Through games and adventures, we gain better awareness of ourselves and the world around us.

Special Workshops during camp vary each week and include: Wild Foods, Local Food and Farming, Building Shelters, Yoga, Qi Gong and Nature Arts and Crafts.
