NEW!Wilderness Survival Science Overnight - PARENTS/GUARDIANS WELCOME!
August 23-24, 2014, 5th - 8th grade, 2pm arrival on 8/23 - 9am departure on 8/24 *Limit 25 $85 per camper, $20 per parent/guardian (adult participation is optional)

Parents/guardians are welcome, but this camp is great for kids on their own as well! Budding Explorers will learn the skills it takes to thrive in remote locations on this fun, structured adventure! Where will you sleep? What will you eat? How will you find your way to civilization? The adventure begins at 2pm on Saturday, August 23rd as campers learn about Orienteering, and use compasses and GPS devices to navigate to different stations on a huge, scavenger hunt-type course through woods and varying terrain on the Air Zoo's main campus. At each checkpoint, they'll participate in fun and exciting activities & games, learn key survival skills from Wilderness Experts, and gather essential materials they'll need to build their overnight camp. At the end of the day, the adventurers will use their new found survival skills to set up camp (weather permitting), and they'll spend the evening around a campfire making s'mores, telling stories, playing games, and hearing true-life survival and adventure stories from our resident experts. All participants will be provided with dinner, snacks, drinks, and breakfast (no bug eating required, lol ) and Campers will receive a Wilderness Survival Guide, headlamp, compass, and other great gear to take home!

Space is filling up fast! To register, please contact the Air Zoo's Events Department ASAP via email at, or via telephone at 269.350.2848 (leave a message if it's after business hours). We take registrations in the order they are received, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Don't miss out, end the summer with memories and skills that will last a lifetime!
