The Challenge Course (Ropes)
Small teams of campers work together toward a common objective and learn problem-solving skills while developing their leadership abilities. Individually, campers will have the opportunity to challenge themselves and expand their comfort zones through the high ropes course.
Using traditional recurve bows, campers have the ability to develop their archery skills. Most campers find archery to be more difficult than expected. However, after some one-on-one instruction, campers quickly find themselves becoming extremely proficient within a short amount of time. Quiet concentration and calculated adjustments are interrupted by the thrill of hearing the arrow slap the target.
Being physically active is a core component in this activity block. Through a variety of slow- and fast-paced outdoor games, campers will learn the importance of working together and collaboration. No doubt, the cooling station with be a favorite part of this program area.
Project WILD is an interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education program emphasizing wildlife. The goal of Project WILD is to assist campers of any age in developing awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment to result in informed decisions, responsible behavior, and constructive actions concerning wildlife and the environment.
During certain blocks in the day, the counselors are responsible for planning and presenting activities for the group. These activities could include interesting arts and crafts projects woodworking, theater, or music. Counselors work with the campers to determine their interest in possible activities and assist with the process of group consensus and decision-making.
