Summer Camp Experiences
Each year around the globe, tens of thousands of children flock to summer camps to build memories and experiences that will last them a lifetime. In the day and age of connectedness, we find that we are living in an age of smart phones, and dumb people.
Camp gives young people the opportunity to connect with their deeper, inner self. It allows young people to remove the gender roles of what they feel needs to be done. When building a shelter, starting fires, or painting – there is no gender advantage.
As an adventurer and outdoor instructor I have worked at dozens of camps around Ontario, Canada. I have held many jobs from entry level counsellor to camp director. I have even helped not-for-profit charities build camp programs from scratch. In summer of 2015 I hosted my own summer day-camp experience at my outdoor school Barefoot Bushcraft.
Barefoot Bushcraft Wilderness Archery Camp is a progressive and modern camp. With parental permission we created a video to showcase the experiences the children had at the camp.
