Summer Camps

Registrations still available. Camps begin June 5.

Summer Camps of Indiana

Our summer camps are awesome adventures for youth ages 6 to 17. The weeklong format allows for lasting bonds to be formed between students, peers and instructors. With extra focus on summer survival strategies specific to Indiana we immerse ourselves in the arts of tracking, camouflage, navigation, wild edible plants, water purification, primitive hunting and fire. Each group of 10 students is led by one expert primitive skills instructor and one assistant (Fire-Keeper). Our days are filled with ancient stories, wondering, deep nature connection, comprehensive instruction, games and fun. Summer Camps are life changing opportunities, and hosted in our Indianapolis based Rocky Ripple location near Butler University.

Making the transition from a careless youth to a responsible adult is difficult in any culture. Few adults live happy, connected lives filled with purpose and freedom.
