NEW THIS YEAR! LITs will have the opportunity to become Wilderness First Aid certified! Register ASAP before the waitlist starts!
ALL Summer Camps (Leader in Training, At Home in the Woods, Way of the Scout and Hunter-Gatherer) are held in Conway, MA.
$252-$300, sliding scale, per child Tuesday-Friday ($150 nonrefundable deposit due upon registration)
*Leader in Training Camp offers the opportunity for preteens and teens to practice their wilderness skills as well as learn how to peer mentor. Mentoring is much more than simply teaching knowledge or skills. As peer mentors, preteens and teens will lead younger participants to conclusions through the art of questioning. They spark passion, develop the need and/or desire to know, ask leading questions and then offer resources to gain answers and understanding.
Upon completion of the LIT week, participants are assessed and may have the opportunity to attend any or all At Home in the Woods Programs as an LIT for half price! There are LIMITED spots for LITs at each At Home in the Woods week (ONLY 2/WEEK RECEIVE LIT DISCOUNT)…so be sure to register early!
Earthwork Programs’ vision for Summer is to offer experiences that will introduce children to a new awareness of themselves and the natural world around them. We achieve this by immersing them in nature through adventure experiences, wilderness living skills, nature awareness, tracking, communication and community building skills, and by bringing forth native teachings from elders around the world.
