Red Wolf Wilderness Camp (Ages 7 – 9, 10 – 14)

Cook over the open fire, harvest wild plants and add them to meals, make fire from rubbing sticks together, and sneak up on your friends covered in natural forest camouflage that makes people virtually invisible. We’ll be making everything from primitive tools to friction fires, shelters to keep us warm and dry in any weather, and having tons of fun playing games and learning all about the world around us. There’s also plenty of hangout time around the fire to relax, and just enjoy being outside.

This week long camp is about learning to live in the wild. We set out on a week long adventure in the wilds of Haliburton to make our camp, and fulfill many of our needs from nothing more than the natural world around us. Groups focus on various themes throughout the week, using cool challenges and the amazing places we find to our advantage. Through many of these awesome skills, we’ll be learning about the land and how we can work with it to survive and thrive!

All challenges are by choice, and campers are supported to make decisions they are excited about. We’ll have bug free tents set up for sleeping, and more modern conveniences at hand when needed. All food is provided, and allergies and other food sensitivities are taken into account when planning menus.

Campers are dropped off with the gear they’ll need for the week (a packing list is provided in our welcome package) and parents pick them up a week (or two) later.
