Summer Camp 2023
Blazing New Trails at Forest Floor
Teen Overnight Camp
An overnight program where teens can push their edges in a real way.
Shadow Scouts: Advanced Forest Ninja will be six days and five nights of epic adventure.
We will dive into tracking, teamwork, survival, trail craft, tool creation, stealth, sneaking, stalking, and epic night games, all with a healthy dose of FUN!!!!
Sports in the Field & Forest
A new camp series that “Reimagines What Sports Can Be.”
Run Wild! is An inclusive and gender/age neutral camp that brings the best elements of Forest Floor to a new space – The Game Field!
No skills needed, just an attitude of gratitude and a healthy appreciation for being outside.
Of course, we’re also back with 40 sessions of our popular nature & craft camps.
Based on best practices, we’re putting in place phases for a calmer registration experience that balances gratitude to returning families with open arms for new families.
We’ve also shifted our age brackets, with camps for Ages 6-7, 7-8, 9-12, and 12-17.
