Wilderness Survival and Japanese Sword Camp 
Age 8-15 
Do your kids like getting dirty, playing in the woods, or having adventures? Of course they do! Prepare your child for their next adventure by sending them to train with us in "Survival Camp." The area's top instructors will lead your children through a week of wilderness exploration as they learn about survival shelter construction, camouflage skills, fire safety, navigation, lost proofing, and problem solving. They will get lots of exercise while they experience the natural world around them. This camp is perfect for kids who already spend a lot of time outdoors and for those who could use a little more time outside. Side benefits of this camp include a sense of self-reliance, and an understanding of the importance of teamwork, leadership training, and a sense of appreciation for the things that they have.  

In the afternoon, campers will take their skills to the next level and learn what made the ninja of Japan legendary!  The ninja may seem mysterious, but the origin of their name is not. The word 忍者ninja derives from the Japanese characters "nin" and "sha,” literally meaning “person who perseveres,” but over time legend led it to mean, "one who hides or conceals" or "one who moves stealthily." The ninja originated in the mountains of Japan over 800 years ago as clandestine practitioners of ninjutsu, the martial art of invisibility deception. The ninja operated as military spies and trained in disguise, concealment, geography, meteorology, medicine, and combat. It was their unique skill set and unstoppable spirit that formed the legend of the ninja as we know it today. Do you want to be a ninja?? Campers will take their skills to the next level and learn what made the ninja of Japan legendary!
