Test your outdoor skills on survival day. What would you bring on a long trek? Practice loading a backpack, building a shelter and learn different ways to build and maintain a fire.

Friday, June 10: Jurassic World
Join us as we are transported back to time. To the time of the Dinosaurs’! We will be adventuring through the lands discovering Dino Eggs and serving our friendly herbivore dinos a fresh salad of fruit and veggies we slice and dice with our Archery stills!


  • Each day, campers should come prepared for outdoor activities, although there is plenty of indoor space we will be using throughout the day. Traditional camp activities are weather-dependent but are also planned through the week (climbing and teambuilding, archery, hiking, bounce pillow, nature hikes)
  • Campers should bring a lunch, sneakers, swim suit and towel for the splash pad and water each day.  An afternoon snack is provided.
  • For your campers safety: ANY PERSON PICKING UP YOUR CAMPER WILL BE REQUIRED TO SHOW PHOTO I.D. We will not release any camper to parents or authorized pick ups without proper identification.
