The Adventure & Discovery Department
Instruction in the following activities is provided in a supervised and safe environment for campers at all ability levels.
“Cook gourmet meals – over a fire!” – campers plan, prepare, and eat a variety of tasty and nutritious meals and treats. Traditional Camp Netimus recipes are shared. Techniques using both campfire and portable stove methods are learned
“Be close to Nature, while burning calories!” – suitable for campers regardless of age or ability level. Camp Netimus has its very own skills course and trails that wind through the nearby forest. We emphasize skill development through fun, games, and trips. Excursions are offered to surrounding parks.
Camping and Hiking
“Leaves of three, let it be!” – this class is all about enjoying the great outdoors. Nature study, animal tracking, reading weather, trip planning, orienteering, and astronomy are just some of the skill areas explored.
High and Low Ropes Course
“Climb to the sky!” – the ropes course is set amidst the woods at camp, providing a challenge to adventurous girls. This program focuses on development of self-esteem, team building, and trust. Over twenty different ropes elements including a 50 ft. rappelling platform, cargo net, “Swinging Rock”, “Into Thin Air”, and a zip line are guaranteed to get the adrenaline and laughter flowing. Safety is our first priority!
