Summer Camps ’18

Laughing Coyote Summer Camps 2018

YOUTH DAY CAMPS:

Scout Day Camp

Dates: Monday June 11th -Friday June 15th  

Ages: Boys and Girls ages 8-12

Times: 9am-2pm

Location: Fire Willow Farm: Longmont, CO

Description: The scouts were the eyes and ears of every tribe. Awareness, tracking, and invisibility were mandatory skills for their survival and the protection of their people. In this exciting camp we will explore the many facets of scout skills, tracking, and invisibility. We will practice camouflage, stalking, martial arts, animal forms, awareness expanding activities and scout games. The true lesson will be for each scout to learn to move in harmony with their scout team and transcend physical discomfort.

Cost: $300 (includes a free Laughing Coyote T-shirt)

Bushcraft Camp:

Dates: Monday June 18th -Friday June 22nd

Ages: Boys and Girls ages 8-12

Times: 9am-2pm

Location: Fire Willow Farm: Longmont, CO

Description: Walking into the natural world, the Bushcrafters are at home, feeling at ease upon the landscape. They engineer shelters, conjure fire, and craft their tools from their surroundings. In this camp, small clans will build a village, learning the creativity that is a Bushcrafter’s most valuable tool. Silent movement and awareness will be essential as the clans raid one another for tools, as well as learn the skills of barter and trade for materials. Games will be used to settle disputes, and the door to adventure in the wilderness will be opened.

Cost: $300 (includes a free Laughing Coyote T-shirt!)

A large part of each day will be spent focusing on: knife safety, whittling, fire making, basketry, archery, shelter building, primitive tools, and fiber arts and cordage. We will also be playing signature Laughing Coyote games and spending time cooling off in the pond. Every year Skills Day Camp offers unique projects, so returning campers will be learning different skills each year.
