Full Day Summer Camp: Wilderness Explorer

August 15, 2016 @ 9:00 am - August 19, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

$40 – $180

Summer is a great time to be outside discovering the natural beauty that surrounds us here in Northern Michigan. Summer also presents a perfect opportunity to engage your child in a different kind of learning—the kind that lasts a lifetime and doesn’t require the internet or a text book. Our tried and true curricula of hands-on, outdoor experiences will inspire your child’s innate curiosity, creativity and empathy for the plants, animals and ecosystems that elevate Northern Michigan among the most beautiful places on earth.

Get off the beaten path and join us for this wilderness adventure! Hit the trails and explore all that the woods and river have to offer.  Become an amateur naturalist, a wilderness survival expert, and river whiz!  Participate in teambuilding challenges, learn how to explore natural areas responsibly, and prepare to share these adventures with your family and friends. Each week includes a field trip or visit from a special guest. For ages 7-10. Cost: $40/day or $180/week.
