Wilderness encounter groups & Ecoliteracy Camps

These camps are designed to provide in depth ‘nature emersion’ experiences and unforgettable adventures in the wilderness. Students learn about the fundamentals of ecoliteracy (how to ‘read the landscape) and are introduced to some basic bushcraft skills. This is a unique opportunity for students to encounter the material and psychological challenges of survival in wild environments. It helps them to expand their horizons and develop new perspectives on life and gain insight about humanity and nature.
