Since 1995, our summer day camps have provided nature adventures for
children. They work together in small groups gaining nature awareness
and experiential knowledge of plants, mammals, tracking, birds and
survival. Through storytelling and engaging nature activities, tangible and
intangible skills are woven into each of our camps, which nurture students'
connection to the earth and build skills that will serve them for a lifetime.

“My son emerges from camp with his heart full, and he's brimming with
observations and stories from nature...” –Kim Scanlon
Overnight camps give students exciting camping experiences while learning in-depth skills of survival and nature awareness. They are
filled with outdoor adventures for all experience levels in the forested foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
Survival Skills Overnight
This five-night camp is focused on learning
wilderness survival skills basics while
practicing them daily. Students will have
opportunities to practice fire making, knifesafety
and carving, shelter construction, and
primitive cooking, and may choose to create
their own fire kit and spoon or bowl to take
home! Students will have the opportunity to
sleep in shelters they have constructed and
will bring home amazing stories.

Scout Awareness Overnight
five-night camp devoted to developing
A the keen awareness of the ancient scouts
of many cultures whose abilities seemed like
magic. Through adventures with camouflage,
"bird language" (to discover the movement
of predators), wildlife and human tracking,
stealthy movement, and uses of wild edible
plants, we begin to enter the world of the
scout. Participants in this camp will likely
never see nature the same way again!

Advanced Survival Overnight
This five-night advanced camp takes the
skills taught in our other overnights to
a new level. The first days are spent in base
camp preparing tools and practicing survival
skills. In the second portion of the camp, we
move away from base camp, put our skills to
the test, and learn to provide for our needs
of shelter and food from nature. Previous
experience with our camps is encouraged
though not required.

Teen Wolf Tracking (Ages 13-18)
Join us in the wild backcountry of Idaho as we search for tracks and
sign of the elusive wolf and other amazing wildlife! As teens on
this adventure explore the rivers, forests, and mountains guided by
our most experienced instructors, opportunities for wildlife watching
The beginning week is for new trackers as well as returning students
who are primarily interested in the variety of adventures to be had in
the Idaho backcountry. The advanced week is for returning students
to Idaho who are seeking a more focused study of wildlife tracking
and are ready to push themselves to hone their skills in these areas.
Participants can be picked up in Boise, ID, and driven by van to our
Teen Advanced Wolf Tracking Day Camps (Ages 13-18) (Ages 10-12)
These camps build on knowledge gained at our beginner Day Camps,
and require at least 1 week of prior camp experience with us; can be
taken earlier the same summer!
Scout Awareness Day Camp focuses on using our
senses to the fullest, as did the ancient “scouts” of many cultures who
were able to travel for days without supplies. We will gain knowledge
of plants as food and medicine; tracking to gather details of animals’
lives without ever seeing them; and “bird language” to allow us to
move silently and become more aware of predators.
Survival Skills Day Camp is an extremely hands-on camp
that includes the wilderness living skills of fire making, wilderness
craft and tool making. Possible experiences include fire making
practice (both with and without matches), principles of shelter
building, and open-fire cooking. Outdoor knife safety is also covered
at this exciting Advanced Day Camp.
