Survival Adventures is an introductory camp for young explorers to gain better knowledge and understanding of what it takes to live in the outdoors. Under the guidance of our expert instructors, campers will practice basic skills in areas such as preparing a campfire, building a shelter, looking for animal signs, identifying plants, navigating by compass, and tying knots. At the Storrs Pond location, canoeing and time for free swim in the pond will be provided.* Daily themes, stories, and mock survival scenarios will encourage campers’ appreciation of nature. This camp provides a great opportunity for young outdoor enthusiasts to build proficiency in basic wilderness and teamwork skills all while having a blast!

 

*A certified lifeguard will be present during all swimming and boating activities.
