Explorers Camp


Explorers Camp (Ages 4 – 12)*

Explorers camp is all about exploration and wandering. With specific themes each day to focus our adventures and fun, we’ll spend the week exploring amazingly diverse ecosystems – forests, fields, valleys, wetlands, and more. Throughout the program we play nature-based games, tell stories, create nature-related art and drama, explore, make all-natural crafts and learn various survival and wilderness living skills, such as creating shelters that can keep us warm and dry in all weather conditions.

 *Please note: Explorers Camp now encompasses what was previously called ‘Wanderers Camp’.

Content includes:

  • natural and human-made hazards
  • edible and medicinal plants and trees
  • mammals and wildlife tracking
  • birds and bird language
  • a holistic understanding of ecological systems
  • storytelling, art and theatre
  • a variety of wilderness living and naturalist skills
