American Heritage

  • 006

Dates: June 17 - June 30, 2018
Tuition: $1895.00
Ages: 6-16

Our two-week sessions for boys and girls, ages 6-16 begin with "American Heritage." At this session, we explore the rich history of the early American West with its mountain men, trappers and plains Indians. Campers and staff create a day-long “Rendezvous,” evoking a 19th-century frontier atmosphere. Events begin with a flapjack-eating contest and continue with games, fire-building, prospecting, bartering and "tall tales." Our first regular session culminates with a dramatic Pow Wow; complete with costumes. All "tribes" come together to display culture, legends, ceremonies and dances that are particular to their cabin group. American Heritage is all about outdoor fun – the mood is positive and mellow, with non-competitive activities that build self-esteem. It's an excellent choice for first-time campers.
