American Heritage

  • 006

Dates: June 14 - June 27, 2020
Tuition: $2,200
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. Junior and Middler campers can earn skill tokens for different activity areas, and Senior Campers have the choice to work on skill tracks such as the Buckskinner (Riflery, Archery, Survival Skills), Headliner (Drama and Performance), Naturalist (Alchemy, Preservation, Survival), Range Rider (Horseback Riding, Rifles, Survival), and/or Trainblazer (Ropes, Survival). The session culminates in a day-long “Rendezvous,” evoking a frontier atmosphere. Events begin with a flapjack-eating contest and continue with games, fire-building, prospecting, bartering and "tall tales." 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.
