Camp Dawes: Wilderness Survival (ages 9-11)


  • July 17, 2017 - July 21, 2017
    9:00am - 3:00pm


What would you do if you were stranded in the wilderness?  How would you survive?  In this hands-on camp, cover the basics of what it takes, including nature awareness and mental preparedness.  Learn how to use a compass and other tools essential for survival.

Family memberships are a great way to offset some of the costs associated with camp.  Click here to learn about Arboretum membership.  In 2017, a limited number of camp scholarships will be offered.  Contact us at for more information on scholarships.

Online registration for each individual camp session closes one week prior to the date the session starts. Late registrations may be accepted. To inquire about available space after online registration is closed, please call our Visitors Center during business hours at 740.323.2355.
