Outdoor Survival Camp

Grades 5-7 in the Fall of 2023

Outdoor survival at its finest: learn survival skills, build your own shelter, start a fire, cook meals (your group’s choice) over a campfire, relax in a hammock, and more! Take a break from shelter building to solve the airplane crash survival mystery and enjoy the climbing wall, canoeing, and swimming. Join the rest of camp in all camp games (wide games). Get away from it all to explore the Bible and form new friendships. Live in the Survival Cabin and a shelter you will build.

Housing Location

This completely enclosed cabin can sleep up to 12 in one room and 8 in another. It has a canvas roof, continuous peak skylight and a rustic feel of a cabin constructed by survivors of a near by  airplane downing. Mosquito netting and screen doors make it mosquito proof.  The sky lighting and wispy mosquito netting windows make for a well-lit interior by day.

Of course, this cabin does not have electricity. It is located near the composting toilet and the hand washing (tooth brushing – face washing) station (100-120 yards). The Survival Cabin also features a very nice campfire site complete with fire ring and seating logs.
