Summer Camp - Survivor Week - Seattle - 2023

Youth Program

Summer Camp - Survivor Week

A fun-filled week of outdoor adventure and wilderness survival skills!

What would you do if you were lost in the woods? Could you find your way home using a map and compass? Could you build a fire or shelter? Would you have the 10 Essentials in your pack? 

Join The Mountaineers for a week-long survival-themed camp and let us introduce you to these skills and more! Campers will have the chance to try climbing, navigation, first aid, and basic wilderness survival techniques as well as play camp games, go swimming, and develop outdoor skills. 

During Survivor week, we take a field trip to Alderleaf Wilderness College. Alderleaf offers courses on wilderness survival, wild edible & medicinal plants, permaculture, wildlife tracking, and outdoor education in the Pacific Northwest. This epic field trip will have campers learning outdoor skills, building shelters, making fire, hiking, and playing games.
