Camp Theme Descriptions

Viking and Spartan Camp: Viking children were highly skilled at an early age. They were taught to hunt, build, navigate, survive, and thrive as functioning members of their community.
In ancient Sparta, both boys and girls were taught to hunt and survive beginning at age 7. At an early age they became self sufficient. Spartans are still considered the greatest warriors that ever lived.
We won’t be conquering neighboring camps or communities, but we will definitely have a great time exploring Camp Sewee! And while we won’t be training to be warriors, wouldn’t it be fun to play like a Spartan for a week?!! (HIGHLIGHTS: basic woodworking and metal work, leather work, jewelry making, face painting, games, period tools, exploration and navigation skills, wrestling, military formations.)

Mountain Man Survival Skills Camps are an exciting, hands-on week of learning skills and methods used by Mountain Men as well as the Native American tribes of the Low Country. Experience life in the “wild”! Tracking, trapping, camouflage, leather-work, and basic woodworking using period tools and techniques. Of course we’ll have contests, play games and get dirty too! Stories, history, adventures and more.
Survival Skill themed camps may include; fishing, trapping, handmade tools, shelters, fire starting, forging, cordage, communication skills, use of natural materials and optional pocket knife skills.

Build Things Camps are an Intro to Huck Finn School basics! Simple building-based projects, correct use and care of tools,  “workshop etiquette” and of course FUN! Geared towards the engaging and energetic 5-8 year old age group.

World War II Survival Skills Camps are a salute to the brave and brilliant soldiers of WWII. Learn about and recreate ingenious inventions and creative tactics that helped the Allies gain victory, as well as an incredible appreciation for the era through stories, games, projects and simple productions.  

Handmade Art and Music Camp Handmade instruments, traditional, natural and reclaimed material art, stories, music and tons of fun!
