In Summer Native Skills Camp, students will be learning to meet our basic needs of shelter, water, fire, and food in simple and practical ways using only stone, bone, and plant materials. Along the way they will be connecting directly with the natural world and learning how our ancient ancestors lived close to the Earth.

Students use natural materials to make shelters and many kinds of tools. Each camp location offers different challenges and opportunities, and every week of camp is different.

Students coming to Native Skills Camp for the first time will make a bow and arrow from natural materials using stone tools (we do not use metal or modern tools in camp). Returning students will have the option of making other tools such as spears, cordage and rope, fish hooks and fishing line, or stone knives, to name a few. Students will be able to take the tools they make home with them at the end of the session.

In these hands-on classes we will build shelters, practice awareness skills, learn native and non-native plants, make tools from natural materials without steel knives or modern tools, and explore our local wilderness areas with reverence and wonder.
