Stayin’ Alive (with an overnight W-F at Marmot) *FULL*

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you got lost in the woods? Or do you simply want to be more at home in the vast outdoors? Join us as we dive into the art of wilderness survival, learning essential skills that will keep us safe and comfortable in wild places. We will build natural shelters, taste wild edible plants, and learn to interpret animal tracks and signs. We will even learn some of the tricks of fire building!

We will spend two nights (W-F) at Marmot Cabin, sleeping in yurts, exploring the woods and learning the ways of the wild and the secrets of wilderness living.

Week-long Camp: August 1 – August 5, 8:30/8:45 a.m. – 3:15/3:30 p.m.
Grades: 3-5
Drop off Location:
Grades 3-5 meet at Upper Macleay Park, which neighbors Portland Audubon on Cornell Road to the east.
Type of Camp: Overnighters mainly take place at Marmot Cabin and the Miller Wildlife Sanctuary, outside of Sandy, Oregon. There are two 30 foot yurts and a 3,200 square foot cabin and a 91 acre wildlife sanctuary for us to explore, learn new skills and connect with nature and each other.
