Session Description​

Inspired by Walt Whitman’s words: “Now I see the secret of the making of the best persons.  It is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.”  This session will begin, and end, in the national forest.  We will make our home with what we carry in on our backs.  The goal is to just live simply in a basic base camp in the woods--making accoutrements from the natural world, exploring our beautiful surroundings, fishing in the streams, breathing the fresh air!  We will have adventures to find “cashed” supplies that will help keep us sustained, but we will have to work together as a team!

There is really no better place for the nature lover, the thrill seeker, or someone wanting to be a part of a strong and loving community.
