Once your basic human needs are met, it's time to start thinking about securing those needs, finding more comfort, and progressing along the path towards self actualization and wellness.
This is where many of our pioneer ancestors found themselves in their everyday lives. Long term structures, better cooking conditions, but there's still much work to do.
We'll put a lot of time into building a long term cabin-esque structure. Daily we will also focus on constructing and using a pioneer style camp kitchen and use it often. (make sure to see note below about dietary issues)
*note: Please send your child with their normal water and lunch each day. However we will also be doing plenty of food preparation and cooking during this camp. Please alert the instructor(s) and your child(ren) about any dietary restrictions that the participant(s) should avoid. Thanks! **note: This camp will require moderate physical exertion while building primitive structures. Please consult and advise your child(ren) about this before registering.
