We are proud to present this new opportunity for returning students and students with some bushcraft experience to level-up their skills. This camp will include elements from our survival, naturalist, and projectiles camps (see those camp descriptions for details), leveling up the approach to beyond the introductory level. Students who have been through the how-to's and safety intros of proper tool use, archery range safety and etiquette, and are familiar with the rules, rhythms, and culture of our programs will get the chance to try more advanced survival skills and new techniques with their peers! What to bring? Students attending should be prepared with a backpack, lunch and snacks, water, weather-appropriate clothing including close-toed shoes and spare water shoes with a heel strap, sunblock, hats, hand sanitizer, and all they'll need for a full day of fun outside! Locations will have toilets, extra drinking water, shade, and cooling areas (either a misting tent or nearby body of water). Nighthawk will provide all materials needed for daily activities! What makes Nighthawk Camps unique? Small groups. Education. Community. We are a small organization who places the utmost importance on an educational experience. Yes, there will be play, fun, games, and activities along the way, but lifelong learning is our priority. So, if kids are keen on learning skills and are passionate about learning more about their natural surroundings, this is the camp for them! In addition, our camps will consist of only one or two small trail groups per week, with a 1:5 teacher: student ratio at all times. We believe small groups provide for an enhanced sense of awareness and community in kids and allows us to better tailor camps.
