Outpost is for campers in grades 8-12 that want to spend more than half of their week out in the wilderness. Prior to their adventure out into the woods, Outpost campers will learn how to set up their tents, utilize their surroundings, develop basic outdoor cooking skills, and work as a team. Outpost campers will also get the opportunity to go offsite to enjoy rafting or hiking. When they are staying at Namanu, campers will sleep in the Balagan tree houses. Spaces are very limited as there will only be 2 sessions of Outpost offered for summer 2019.
Good for Grades: 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th
Pioneer campers awaken to the calming rush of the nearby Sandy River in three-sided cabins. The Pioneer unit gives campers the opportunity to work together while planning a week filled with invigorating camp activities such as learning outdoor skills, taking aim at archery, getting creative with arts & crafts, or reaching new heights on the climbing tower. 8th and 9th graders are encouraged to take on more leadership roles in their cabin groups and may choose to do an extended hike, challenge themselves on the ropes course, or learn advanced outdoor skills. Pioneer campers have the option to sign up for an Adventure Day activity for $100.
