Survival Camp

Ages 10 - 14Shelter Building

At survival camp, campers will learn what it takes to survive in the wilderness.  Half of each day will be devoted to honing campers' survival skills; constructing shelters, navigating by compass, identifying flora and fauna, learning to light a fire and much, much more! 

The rest of the day will be spent enjoying some of our classic Wye Marsh Day Camp activities; hiking the extensive network of trails, learning about birds, reptiles and amphibians through live animal demonstrations; paddling the channels of the Marsh; and so much more.

At the end of the week, campers will have a chance to put their new knowledge to the test in a final survival challenge.
