There is an option to go horseback riding or ride on an ATV on Saturday or Sunday. This is an additional $50 per activity. Please notify the office by Wednesday, June 12 if you are interested.

Our traditional evening programs include a night hike and campfire.

Our campfire program involves interactive songs and games, often performed by trained musicians, around a crackling fire. Other evening programs are available by request. The night hike gives students an opportunity to explore a nocturnal environment and learn about the unique adaptations animals and birds have evolved to survive in low light. The hikes are full of games, stories and sensory awareness activities.

Quest for Fire

Here is a great way to combine adventure, map reading skills and fire making. Students use maps and/or GPS units to locate wooden boxes hidden along the trail of our range area. Each box has a little something to start a fire. Find all the boxes and be the first to start a fire and boil up a taste of the woods (forest tea).

Inuit Games

Learn a host of traditional northern games, which emphasize balance, agility, strength and patience. Every student excels in at least a few of the games=Try out the seal kick, the log jump, the airplane, the muskox and many, many others. This program is accompanied by Inuit legends, Inuit cultural awareness and if time permits, we teach students a number of traditional Inuit string games.

Fundamental Movement Skills

perform movement skills in the kind of combinations that are required in a variety of modified games, gymnastics, dance, and outdoor pursuits: locomotion/traveling (e.g., running, jumping, and hopping in combination, as performed in basketball or in a triple jump), manipulation (e.g., stepping sideways to get in position to bump or volley a ball, as performed in volleyball), and stability (e.g., running and jumping and landing, as in long jump)

English Games

Students will participate in fun storytelling activities while incorporating drama. Stories will come to life in this fun and interactive activity. Also, we will play team building games and use language skills while incorporating the natural beauty around us.
