Wild Roots: A Summer Camp for Girls
Jul 30, 2018 - Aug 3, 2018
The feedback from the Snowlandia program was so positive, Wildernook Fresh Air Learning and SaskOutdoors are teaming up again to offer a summer version of the program - this time including two nights of camping!
Wild Roots is for 9 - 11 year old girls who would like to spend more time outdoors exploring, leading and just plain living. Whether preparing food, setting up shelter, or building a fire, there are plenty of outdoor living skills to learn and practice. This camp will offer a fun and encouraging environment for participants to practice their outdoor skills and experience the benefits of nature immersion.
What will the week look like? Monday and Tuesday will involve skill and team building in Saskatoon during the days (8:30 to 4:30 each day) and Wednesday to Friday will involve outdoor living and learning in a wilderness location (2 nights away).
Location: Monday will be based at Gabriel Dumont Park in the Buena Vista neighbourhood. Tuesday will be at a similar urban park (TBA) depending on our learning focus. Wednesday to Friday we will set up and live in a boreal forest base camp 1 - 2 hours north of Prince Albert.
Cost: The cost is $415 for SaskOutdoors Members or $435 for Non-Members. The program cost of includes learning materials and any gear rental. Participants must provide their own rain gear, day pack, sleeping bag and inflatable sleeping pad.
