Wilderness Discovery Series for Teens – classes

Posted on Dec 20, 2016

Do you feel the call of the wild? Want to learn the basics before heading out on one of Camp’s Teen Adventure Trips this summer? Come join us for our outdoor adventure sessions at camp! Bring your friends (and make some here!) to explore our incredible 800 acres of nature for the day. Our instructors will teach you everything you need to know – no experience or equipment is necessary. In order to ensure that all participants receive personal attention, class sizes will be very limited – only 15 spots per course. Sign up online in early January 2017 by clicking “Register,” log-in or create an account, and then select “2017 All Other Programs” to secure your place!

$5 per class or $15 for all four sessions
