The Woodcraft Way
Exploration is vital to the Woodcraft Way. Coined by Ernest Thompson Seton, author, naturalist and one of the founders of the early scouting movement, the Woodcraft Way encourages young people to develop a holistic sense of self: body, mind, spirit and service. All Woodcraft programs are designed to build character, strength, resiliency, a deeper understanding of one’s place in the world, and a greater commitment to nature and the community.
From ropes courses to soccer games, campers of all ages and abilities get physical while testing their limitations, building strength, improving skills and having fun.
From rocket launchers to robotics, STEM-based activities are infused into every camp day, expanding campers’ understanding of the how things work and how to build them.
From arts and crafts to mountain hikes, campers are encouraged to reflect. They journey inward to explore their creativity and outward into the natural world. From tiny bugs to soaring trees, campers get to experience life’s beauty and wonder.
From cabin comradery to plant life lessons, campers learn that they are part of a bigger world that calls on them to be their best selves. They learn to be better teammates, partners and members of their community.
