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 WILDERNESS & ADVENTURE?
The camp has two parts: Adventure Skills on Monday-Wednesday, and an overnight camping trip Thursday-Friday. The first part consists of rock climbing, paddling a canoe, and explore a nearby lake. The camp concludes with an overnight camping trip where the boys get to test their new skills in the wild. There, campers will work together to show that they can plan for a trip and thrive in the wilderness. The camp has a 15-camper limit. First come, first served!
