28 Days of Wilderness Adventure for Teens
An extensive 28 day Wilderness Immersion program combining both teen camps with more experiential wilderness survival training for the adventurous spirit from 15 to 18 years of age.
In order for your teenagers to have the best one-on-one, personalized attention with hands-on experience, space is limited to (12) participants during the one-week, (12) during the two-week camp, and six (12) participants for the 28 day Apprentice program. The ratio of staff to students is high and provides excellent quality instruction.
We are not a boot camp, a religious organization, or a therapy camp. We are a nature based adventure company specializing in indigenous survival, nature awareness, and bushcraft skills.
“Our whole family (three teenage boys, plus two parents) wholeheartedly recommend Mark Wienert’s tracking and camping experiences”.
“Mark is grounded spiritually and physically. He teaches by example from a wealth of experience and knowledge gained by living off and in harmony with the land. He’s a great role model and mentor — calm, wise, highly skilled, and thoughtful soul.
We are very lucky to have found him. He has been a pivotal person in our sons’ coming of age over many years now.”
