Have An Extreme Survival Experience!

If your camper is up for a thrilling challenge and wants to learn how to camp primitively, our Adventure Survival Camp is a great option for them. They will learn outdoor living skills, gain an appreciation for the natural environment around them, and challenge themselves during this week-long backcountry experience. Under careful supervision, your camper will gain valuable outdoor survival skills, as they’re encouraged to grow in scenarios such as:

  • Creating shelters from resources found in nature
  • Foraging for food and learning to set traps
  • Building fire to cook over and stay warm
  • Navigating waterways and rough terrain
  • Employing various methods of self-rescue and rope techniques

Campers are outfitted with essential outdoor gear, so they can experience
simulated, yet very real, survival scenarios in the wilderness. Campers develop grit and resilience as they test the boundaries of their physical and mental toughness. This is the only Frost Valley program where campers rappel down a 50-foot waterfall!
