August 21-26, 2016 Overnight Youth Camp in Millersylvania State Park near Olympia WA
Our scout camps are widely considered the most fun, mind-blowing programs we offer. Discover skills of the ancient scout, nearly lost to history. We are a staff who has studied under scouts only once removed from the likes of Baden-Powell and Geronimo. A scout must live with honor, balance, and in harmony with the earth in order to blend in with nature and move like a shadow across a wide array of terrain types. We will also explore some basic martial arts and learn to use tricks of mind-over-matter to help us accomplish feats that seem impossible.
Scouting is not all about blending in with nature, though. This camp has a strong focus on building community relationships; learning to work in teams; embracing humility and self-sacrifice for the greater whole; and learning how to be an agent of change by truly understanding [blending with] those you disagree with. We will teach participants to value the significance of their immediate actions on the outcomes of their future.
Additionally, we will explore “Four Areas of Growth”. Each day will be filled with activities that will help us grow Physically, Mentally, Emotionally, or Intuitively.
Ages 13-17: Space is available; no prerequisite.
Ages 9-13: Space is available; no prerequisite.
Ages 5-13: You may participate in the day camp running simultaneously at a park in Everett.
