Camp Themes/Descriptions

*Viking 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.  We won’t be conquering neighboring camps or communities, but we will definitely have a great time exploring Camp Sewee! (HIGHLIGHTS: basic woodworking and metal forging, leather work, jewelry making, face painting, games, fishing, tools, period exploration and navigation skills.)

*Sparta! Camp* 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. Although we won’t be creating warriors, wouldn’t it be fun to play like a Spartan for a week?!! (HIGHLIGHTS: Wrestling, sword making, obstacle course, fishing, military formations, games and basic woodworking and metal forging.)

*World War II Survival Camp*  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 appreciation for the era. Campers will experience lots of fun with “Physical Training”, obstacle course, troop movements and tactics, communication methods, games and final missions!

*Mountain Man Survival Camp* 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, 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 of course optional pocket knife skills! 

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

*Build Things! (Foundations and Creations Camp)* 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.
