Item Description

Located in the heart of Vermont’s Green Mountains, Night Eagle Wilderness Adventures is a unique primitive summer camp for boys ages 10-14 that is designed to build a boy’s self-confidence and foster a better understanding of native peoples and their relationship with the earth. Boys live in Lakota tipis and share in the cooking which is done over an open fire. Days and evenings are filled with quite crafts, active games, meaningful discussions, homemade music, storytelling, and a hundred other activities.


Activities tend to spring from the environment and teach boys to rely on their own ingenuity. Soon after their arrival, campers are busy carving bows and arrows, paddling canoes, creating birch bark baskets, throwing darts with an atlatl, making moccasins and rattles, mastering the art of tracking and camouflage, identifying wild edibles, and learning to build fires with flint and steel and bow drills. Through these activities and the slower pace of life in camp, boys naturally develop a deeper respect for the land and an authentic sense of personal accomplishment as they learn to live competently in the woods.

Through mutual responsibility, community living and group decision making, campers learn to live in harmony with themselves, others and nature, as they work and play together in a spirit of cooperation rather than competition.

 

Restrictions: Night Eagle staff is not trained or licensed to work with troubled boys. Our program is designed for boys who enjoy being outdoors and are excited about learning wilderness skills.

Special Instructions

Camper must be a boy.  Valid for 1 week session.
