Camp Koviashuvik
(see description and photos)
Build a home of sticks and leaves, drink pure water from a spring, kindle fire from friction, carve a bow and arrow from a sapling, bake bread from acorns, sleep on a mountain top and find the North Star. Welcome to Camp Koviashuvik, a six day overnight camp for "wild" kids who want to make friends with the earth and each other.
We begin the week at Koviashuvik Base Camp living in the Earth Lodge. We will learn to carve spoons and bows, gather food from the garden and the wild, cook on an open fire, and walk silently through the woods. On day 4 we will depart into the wild, wandering the nearby mountains and streams, gathering food and making fire from friction. The last two nights will be spent sleeping in shelters that we build, and living wild and free. We will search for porcupines, track the beaver, and swim in hidden ponds. 
Ages: 10 - 13
Cost : $550 dollars per camper
Dates: (overnight program)
Sunday July 12th, 1:30 pm through Saturday July 18th, 11:30am


Family Sustainability Stays: two different options, the same great program!
A Custom-fit, Three or Five Day Educational Vacation
(see description and photos)
We have two Family Stay offerings, the "Custom Family Stay" and the "Small Family Shared Experience Family Stay." If you are looking for a getaway with just your family, or perhaps your family and another with whom you'd like to come, the Custom Family Stay is for you. You will know all the participants, and we will be able to tailor the program to your specific interests. If you enjoy meeting new people and three members or less of your family will be attending, you could consider the Shared Experience Family Stay, a more affordable option for small families and a chance to make new friends! We will include some of your chosen activities along with those of the other families.

Dates (choose one): Please note, most of these dates have the option of expanding into a five-day program if that better suites your family, just let us know if you are interested in learning more.
