Due to large numbers of registrations, this program is built to be cumulative. It is designed that each time your child comes out, they will learn more and more. Sign-ups are single week, but every time they come out, we will build on their previous knowledge and skill.

Each program day has 3 hours, or rotations.

Hour 3 will be different each visit, building on previous skills.

Groups will be split into 3, and students will rotate through each hour during their 3 hour visit.

Hour 1  – archery

Hour 2 – knife, and card throwing

Hour 3 –  will be outdoor skills such as safe knife & axe handling, as well as fire starting, shelter building, and survival skill building. Each cumulative visit this will be changed to a new subject. This hour will build off each other over the summer.

Every week will include all 3 hours. archery (Hour 1), knife, card throwing (Hour 2)  & dog petting with Hour 3 changing with each visit, building on previous skills.
