Not your Average "Craft" Camp: This camp for 9-12 year olds will be focused on learning naturalist and survival skills through focused activities, adventures, and crafts. Our goals will be getting more comfortable with the land, working with each other, listening to the land and making useful crafts from its bounty! We'll plan at least 3 different craft projects for the week, or one big week-long craft project, depending on students' interests! We'll also have a learning topic each day, based off students' interests. Topic options include: "Rule of 3's" in a survival scenario, shelters, water purification, animal and plant ID, fire safety, carving, archery and spears, making tools from stone and bone, plant potions and teas, baskets, and more! 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! 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.
