The goal of Survival Camp is to reconnect elementary aged children with nature. We want to teach them how to play outside and give them the tools to discover things on their own and guidance to keep them safe as they do it.
KV Survival Camp 2021
BGC Greater Saint John has partnered with the Hammond River Survival Camp to offer the same great camp at a different location!
In a survival setting, effective teamwork is essential. That’s why we split our campers into teams at the beginning of the week! Not only is it practical, but fun too. Teams compete for points throughout the week, and there is a final challenge each Friday to determine the ultimate survival team!
This program will be offered at the Bradley Lake Community Center (248 Bradley Lake Road) in Rothesay, beginning July 5th and ending August 27th.
K-5 camp cost:$175 per camper.
Middle School Camp: $130
CIT (FULL): $100

We teach campers about finding food in the wilderness and safety precautionary measures such as staying away from which plants.
Campers learn how to shoot arrows using a bow with exciting prices to be won on shooting at different targets.
The campers learn all about making fire in adverse situations and all about fire safety.
Campers learn how to find water when they are lost, which water is safe for drinking, and how to filter it.
