Get lost and find your way in North America’s biggest city park. Track animals on a beach where otters play. Climb an extinct volcano. Craft a basket out of invasive ivy plants. Make a healing salve with medicinal plants. It’s all part of this exciting camp which is a great introduction to our “Wilderness Skills Overnight Camp”.
