Sunship

An Incredible Ecological Adventure Camp for Young People ages 10-12!

We are all traveling at an incredible speed around the sun on a ship we call earth. Our mission is to gain the appreciation, understanding and caring for our planet so as to become engaged and confident crew members. Welcome aboard! Join us for…

The FUN and Excitement of Residential Camp at its Very Best

  • Adventure in Nature: Whether it is the magic of the Milky Way, the wonder of a butterfly, or the adventure in a tiny cave, you’ll be exploring the mystery in nature with all sorts of surprises thrown in!
  • Canoeing & Swimming: There’s a neat lake to discover while improving your skills
  • Magic Spots: Your own beautiful spot in the forest, a quiet time to enjoy the peaceful things around you!
  • Good Food: A professional chef who knows how to please… and mealtime is spiced with adventure too!
  • Campfires: Songs, stories, and skits, with a twist of “magic”
  • Good Friends: A fun cooperative group which values each person

Hands-On Learning & A Sustainable Future:

Young people learn ecology and science best by doing. Sunship Earth is learning that’s different, it makes a world of difference…

  • Sneak into a giant leaf to discover how plants make food
  • Become an animal and challenge yourself to capture food and survive
  • Solve the riddles to discover the kidnapped, and the kidnapper
