Class Description:

Human culture is rapidly evolving and transforming in the global community. In this river of change we are being swept downstream in currents of technology and industry that our elders have only recently witnessed the birth of. As new ideas and ways of connecting reshape our world, it’s easy to lose sight of our humanity. In this immersive week, we will come together as males to explore our collective power within this evolving landscape.

Our daily adventures will include running games that unleash the wild spirit within. Amidst towering trees and rustling leaves, boys will tap into their inner architects, crafting wilderness shelters.

At Wildheart Warriors Day Camp, teamwork isn’t just a concept – it’s the heartbeat of our experience. Through collaborative challenges and engaging activities, campers will form connections that extend beyond the program, fostering crucial skills in communication and cooperation. As the class ends each day, our young warriors will emerge with a profound sense of leadership, equipped to navigate the wild landscapes of both nature and life.

In addition to exploring nature, we will engage in the responsible crafting of slings and learn the proper way to handle weapons, fostering an appreciation for the positive qualities of masculinity. Working collaboratively as a group, we will uncover our place in this dynamic present moment, preparing these young men to be exemplars of strength, balance, and authenticity in their evolving roles.
