Two Coyotes Summer Camps Empower Kids
Jun 24, 2011 01:02PM
This summer, Two Coyotes Wilderness School will be holding its Living Earth Summer Camps at Sticks and Stones Farm in Newtown, continuing the camp’s tradition of empowering kids through mentoring and connecting to nature. Tracking deer, gathering wild food, making fire by rubbing sticks together, creating music, journaling, and enjoying “nature art” are just a few of the fun things the camps have planned this summer. Below is a sampling of camp dates and themes.
- Wilderness I (August 1-5) Campers learn how to survive in the wild and taste what it is like to be on a Survivorman-type TV show.
- Nature and the Arts (July 11-15, August 15-19) Campers weave together nature study with such expressive arts as movement, music, journaling and Andrew Goldsworthy-style creations, using only the natural world.
- Wildwood Rangers (August 29- Sept 2) Campers embark on a mythical journey into the Kingdom of Wildwood, where they learn to become apprentice rangers.
- Teen Bowmaking Camp (August 22-26) Teens make a bow and arrow from start to finish.
Two Coyotes camps are staffed by adult teachers, and their small group sizes ensure a rich experience for campers.
The camps, held at Sticks and Stones Farm, are located at 201 Huntingtown Road in Newtown. Visit TwoCoyotes.org for more information.
