Embracing the Earth
Teen Overnight Camp
* Please be aware we are monitoring the advice of health professionals and intend to make a decision about camp status by June 1 in response to the COV19 pandemic. Take care.
Teen Camp is a week-long, coeducational exploration of ecosystems along with other activities on site at Wind Dance and off-site during a number of field trips. On site, campers gather food from the wild and from the gardens for meals they prepare. They hone wilderness and orienteering skills, and participate in farm chores and conservation actions. They also build fires, rest in hammocks, chat (a lot) and have quiet time for reflecting in journals. Under guided leadership campers explore environmental topics of concern and discuss actions that can be taken.
Off-site we go canoeing, hiking, and swimming. Some years we take road trips to explore the diverse habitats of West Virginia, or we hike on the Appalachian Trail. We have serious discussions, unserious play, and restful, silent siesta every day. And, we eat a super of wholesome food prepared by campers under the guidance of our fabulous Camp Guides.
During Teen Camp new friendships develop, and games are played, creating unity within the group. We sing songs to brighten our days, and dance to lively fiddle music! Balancing activity with rest, discussion, and time for reflection, both on-site and off, is the essence of Wind Dance Teen Camp.
