With a nod to the book Hatchet…..what if you were forced to land a plane in the wilderness with no phone, no food, and no shelter? What would you do? This thrilling camp will teach you how to provide for your basic needs: clothing, shelter, food, water, medicine, and navigation. Let’s see if you can survive in Baird Creek!

Daily Needs:

Just like the crayfish in Baird Creek, a day of fun will often include mud, muck, and dirt. Please send an old pair of shoes that are acceptable for walking, hiking, and exploring the creek. We advise that each child comes with a change of clothes each day so that we can send them home dry and keep your car from looking like a nature habitat itself. Each day there will be snack time so please send a snack and a refillable water bottle labeled with your child’s first and last name. We recommend that you also send a small towel for cleaning up and a backpack to carry everything in! On light rain days, we advise that your child also bring a plastic poncho; on heavy rain days/stormy days, activities will be held indoors. Every day of summer camp at Baird Creek will involve lots of walking and exploring. Dress your child appropriately and spray-on sunscreen before they leave home each day!
