Our first overnight camp will be a chance for Fianna kids, and their friends, to test some of the skills they’ve been cultivating throughout the year. We will go deeper into firemaking, tracking and stalking, shelter-building, plant knowledge, handicrafts and bird language. We’ll also be learning some new skills like how to set up a camp and how to cook together.
We’ll be a mini-village for 3 days and 2 nights, immersed in our core routines of play, gratitude, circle sharing, singing, storytelling, observing, inquiring, and connecting with each other and the land. There will be epic games, wild explorations, quiet sit spots, and a few challenges to remind us of what we’ve learned from the woods.
This camp will be about having fun, but we’ll also be guiding kids into a sense of autonomy on the land – being able to take care of themselves, feeling confident, comfortable and aware in the forests of our home.
This camp will be staffed by our experienced wilderness guides:
Kester Reid, Stephanie MacKay, and Tony Heath.
