Summer Camps at Two Coyotes Enrolling Now

Two Coyotes Wilderness School is now enrolling for their 2021 summer camps. Up to nine weeklong day camp sessions will be offered at Sticks & Stones Farm, in Newtown, and Holcomb Farm, in Granby. Each session is led by skilled nature mentors who introduce primitive and naturalist skills by tailoring each camp day to match the natural curiosity of their campers. Two Coyotes has been safely operating in-person programs during the COVID-19 pandemic since last summer. Open enrollment closes on May 1.

Campers may learn anything from how to craft handmade tools and art projects from natural materials, track animals, identify bird language, make friction fires, build forts and shelters and forage for safe wild edibles. Along the way, all campers learn nature-inspired games, songs and have free time to explore streams, mountainsides and other unexpected nature mysteries. Small group size and exceptional adult mentors ensure a high-quality experience filled with memories and new friendships.

For teens, the two-week Mentor-in-Training (MIT) program is designed for those on a leadership path. MITs are teens 14 and older with a desire to dig into how to use their previous wilderness skill experience to mentor youth through nature connection. They also offer Advanced Survival, Scout Tracker and Wildwood Rangers camps. Granby camps mix ages 9 to 15, while Newtown offers these camps in separate age groups for 9 to 12 and 12 to 15.
