E-CAMP is our program exclusively for students in grades 6-8! We go on outdoor adventures, develop outdoor skills and spend time getting to know ourselves and friends a little bit better. E-CAMP runs in the summer, fall and spring and each section incorporates various activities aimed at giving students positive experiences in the natural world, building a community and working on personal development.
This fall, E-CAMP students will spend two days gaining outdoor skills that will be put to the test during our overnight camp out. Each day of E-CAMP (other than the overnight campout, October 27-28) runs from 8:30am to 3:30pm and is $15 per child. The campout will run from 6pm Friday, October 27 to 11am Saturday, October 28 and will cost $30 per child. Drop off and pick up for all events will take place at our East Drake site. You can register individually for each fall program, but we highly encourage students to sign up for every program date, as this will encourage community-building and group-bonding.

Get fired up for your second round of outdoor skills…literally! We will practice using bow drills and flint and steel to light a camp fire. Plus we will build primitive shelters and practice our knot tying skills. After you’ve mastered each of these skills, you’ll put them to the test with your peers to overcome a series of challenges together. We will end the day with some prep work for the overnight camp out the following week.
Registration for E-CAMP will open on August 29. We have full and partial scholarships available for E-CAMP. Please contact us at (970) 491-1661 or email us at email@example.com if you are interested in a scholarship.
