Lightning strikes, dead batteries and losing your map — emergencies can happen at any time! While the odds of being lost or stranded outdoors are pretty low, knowing what to do in an emergency is important. As survivalists, campers learn exactly what to do in an emergency through the team-based study of real-world survival skills. From investigating the utility of tools to working through challenging situations campers use ingenuity to gain crucial skills such as knot tying, building a shelter, water purification and compass navigation. With each thrilling activity, campers gather their senses, put their new skills to the test and conquer every challenge Mother Nature throws their way! Camp will conclude with an overnight camping experience to put all your skills to the test from Thursday, June 14th at 6:00pm to Friday, June 15th at 9:00am.
Members: $150 Non-members: $200
