X for Expert. X for Extreme. Dangerous Camp X is for intrepid campers who have completed the regular Dangerous Camp program or are ready to take their skills to the next level.
This camp is not for the faint-hearted. It is an unforgettable week of adventure, hiking, camping, canoeing, and rock-climbing. The Wilderness & Adventure Camp will push your son “Verso L’alto! (To the top!)” (-Blessed Pier Giorgio Frasatti). The challenges your son will experience will help him answer the question: “Do I have what it takes to survive in the wild?”
Why DCX: Wilderness & Adventure?
This camp has two parts: adventure skills on Monday-Tuesday, and an overnight camping trip Wednesday-Friday. In the first part, campers learn to rock climb and paddle a canoe; hike; create a survival shelter; find water; navigate; etc. The camp concludes with an overnight camping trip where the boys get to test these new skills in the wild. There, campers work together to show that they can plan for a trip and thrive in the wilderness.
This camp has a 10-camper limit: first-come, first-served!
