July 22nd- 23rd, Monday and Tuesday 9-1pm (I provide a snack around 11am, but you are welcome to send food with your kiddo, they can eat their snacks whenever they like/are hungry)
Suggested ages 9 and up. (if you have a teen -13 or older- who is experienced with fire starting or archery and wants to help with the camp, let me know!)
In mixed age camps, older kids get to take on leadership and mentoring roles while younger kids get the opportunity to learn how to work in a group and gain confidence by being empowered to try new things! There is so much to learn by being around those not in one’s age group and without many opportunities for that to happen in today’s world, it is a joy to provide it during these camps!
If this camp is full, please head here to register for the waitlist.
Before registering for the camp please read the waiver HERE.

I will send out an email the Friday before each camp with all the information you could ever want/need- if you don’t receive an email by Saturday morning please reach out. You will receive a confirmation email of your registration that includes my EIN for tax purposes- save that email as I do not keep them and will not be able to resend it this time next year when the joys of tax season is upon us.
This year at fire and archery camp kids will be learning fun recipes to cook over their fires after first chopping the wood, making kindling and starting the fire using just a knife and ferro rod. This camp involves using tools that could result in injury which is why I ask for you as parents to sign up your child only if you are confident that they will respect the safety rules. Kids are welcome to bring their own bows/arrows but they are responsible for keeping track of their arrows. I do provide high quality recurve bows and arrows so you don’t have to worry about providing anything for this camp. Fun team competitions are optional in this camp- I never make anyone compete unless they want to. If your child has attended this camp in the past, they will be cooking new recipes and this is a perfect opportunity for them to test what they remember and help teach others as well. I do start the camp with tourniquet first aid training along with clear expectations regarding safety, if possible I plan on having my husband teach some additional first aid skills as that was popular in the past!
