Outdoor Sports Camps
Kids have fun in the fresh air learning about equipment and technique.
Two amazing and traditional target sports, the bow and arrow and the slingshot, are very popular today. Participants will gain understanding and learn to properly use them both safely. Campers will learn to make and use their own targets, learn about different types of bows and the basics of aiming and target shooting.
While learning the fundamentals of archery, campers examine equipment close up, identify the parts of the bow and arrow, and learn the science behind drawing the bow and releasing the arrow. Instructors teach proper grip, stance, and aim alignment. Equipment is provided.
A step by step guide to beginning mountain bike skills to ease the experience of first-time riders. Participants will learn and practice skills in a safe, controlled environment from certified, experienced instructors with a passion for sharing knowledge and developing skills in others. You will learn to shift gears, speed control, cornering and basic bike maintenance. You will need a functioning mountain bike with gears and a helmet (CPSC certified).
Kids get hooked on fishing as they learn basic fishing skills. Lakes provide the scene for fishing fun using the catch-and-release method. Campers can bring their own pole and tackle, or equipment will be provided.
Campers strike out on a bold adventure as they test their strength, strategy, and skill against our climbing wall. Climbers learn about basic climbing, belay techniques, knot tying and climbing safety. Fun team challenge initiatives will aid in a successful climb.
