Frontier Camp takes your child(ren) back in time to the era of Daniel Smith where they experience life and learn the skills of the early frontiersman. Children will «live the adventure» with hands-on training in primitive shelter building, early hunting techniques, and essential frontier survival skills. They will learn how to tie a variety of knots, build two types of fires for cooking, construct valuable tools from the forest around them, and evaluate their surroundings for safety and opportunity. Campers will also get a basic introduction to orienteering and water safety throughout the week. Crafts and games are integrated to maximize both education and fun, and students will close out each day by kayaking and swimming in the lake. Frontier Camp is the perfect opportunity to make new friendships, learn a new set of useful skills, and get out into the nature in our own backyard.

July 17-20 ~ 9 am — 3 pm
Sign up your child today for a summer camp experience that will bring history to life! $145/camper, $10 second child discount.
