Natural Wonders Day Camp – The best field trip for your Summer Day Camp group! Launched in 2008, this program allows larger groups of various ages to have an introductory nature experience. Held at Fort Benjamin Harrison State Park, our Natural Wonders Day Camp consist of a variety of outdoor activity stations, allowing the students to explore outdoor recreation in a safe environment. Activities include: fishing, nature hike, games, and canoeing.
Wilderness Adventures -Camptown’s Wilderness Adventures take place in the great outdoors. A Wilderness Adventure begins with pre-trip training classes ranging in length from 1/2 hour to two hours. Camptown Staff will come to your group’s location and facilitate an after-school or evening training class. Class topics include wilderness survival, backcountry skills, equipment, environmental stewardship, team building and leadership skills. These programs are led by experienced wilderness guides who make class time interactive and fun. After completing the class time, your group will spend time in nature. This can range from a day hike to a full week in the wilderness. Camptown’s programs are customizable. Upon request, Camptown staff will develop a program unique to your group’s specific needs and desired outcomes.
Youth with Differing Abilities – Our programs for youth with differing abilities are designed to help youth look beyond their disability and see that they can do anything they put their mind to; to try things that they do not think they can accomplish and succeed. Activities are planned with each group’s abilities in mind so that everyone will succeed.
Service Projects – We can customize a service project to your group. Whether you are interested in an environmental project removing invasive plant species, or trail construction or maintenance, or are looking to help people within the community by sorting clothing or providing services to people in need, we can provide all of the planning and transportation. We help you to enable your youth to better serve their communities and become good citizens.
Youth Leader Adventures – Camptown’s Youth Leader Adventures program is designed for youth who choose to further develop their leadership, decision making and professional skills. This program will expose youth to recreational activities, professional development opportunities, and leadership experiences. These young leaders will receive specific training in areas such as First Aid/CPR, Leave no Trace Outdoor Ethics, Leadership, and backcountry camping skills.
Spiritual Missions – Experience God’s love in a life changing way. Developing a sense of purpose and identity are crucial to a young person’s spiritual growth and overall well being. These experiences will expose participants to the idea that life on earth is a blessing given by our creator and how to live life beyond our own self interest. This area focuses on what it means to serve one another.
