Hilltown Wilderness Adventures


Here’s an opportunity for young adults, about to become young women or men, to develop a sense of self , connect deeply with the natural world , experience and reflect profoundly on human community , and grow an identity as leaders, visionaries and team workers . Activities and skills during the 5-day/4 night camp may include: • being invisible in the woods, • wilderness base camp skills, • backpacking, • cordage making and use, • knife safety and carving, • primitive cooking, • planning one’s own backpacking route and meals (in small groups), • learning to live “tribally” (cooperation and conflict resolution), • problem-solving, • orienteering, • basket-making. Camp ends with a river tubing trip!


$500.00 for 5 days/4 nights ($100 nonrefundable deposit due upon registration). Includes all food & cooking equipment, craft materials, tubing. Bring your own tent and personal camping stuff (or we can help provide it as needed). Register by June 1 and receive $50 discount!
