Limited Spots! (10)
While attending our At Home in the Woods Summer Camps, your children learn wilderness skills that the "village" does together. In Way of the Scout, your children learn how to develop proficiency with their own skills. They will practice:
* advanced firemaking, shelter building and camouflage
* blindfold activities
* learning to listen to inner vision...meditation
* water stalking
* night movement (how to move in the night without a flashlight)
* calling in owls
* campfire stalking
They will learn martial arts movements, animal forms, advanced stalking and stick fighting (a way to learn balance, coordination and strength). Warriorship training is not about war...it's about being able to take care of those who cannot take care of themselves...very empowering for all!
With a close-knit community, we will all help each other grow into the Way of the Scout.
$350-$425, sliding scale; $100 deposit required. Includes 5 days plus 1 overnight (and Thursday dinner, Friday breakfast and lunch)
Limit of 10 Campers.
